The Vineyards at 16th an Ridge Ave.
The Large Vacant property at 16th and Ridge Avenue in the Francisville section of North Philadelphia will soon be the home of a new LEED Certified housing development. A group of private stakeholders announced they hope to begin construction in March. The proposed modern and sustainable housing will feature 20 three-family town-homes with hydronic radiant heating and solar thermal hot water systems. The Vineyards at 16th is not only the first LEED-certified housing development in the area, but its construction also has the potential to draw new residents into a neighborhood suffering from population loss.
