Abandoned Properties

We will post addresses as submitted by you, the neighbors, including accrued taxes as available from public records.  Feel free to comment your thoughts and wishes for any property.  Do you want it cleaned up? Do you know of someone who would love to buy it and fix it?

We will work on turning these back into productive homes for the citizens of Philadelphia.

  1. Research by the Wharton School has found that a single blighted property decreases the value of each surrounding property by more than $3,000.

  2. What can we do to make absentee land owners accountable for their vacant lots? A higher tav rate or penalty for land that is undeveloped seems pretty fitting. There’s a huge lot on the northeast corner of broad street and washington avenue that has trash on all 4 sidewalks for an entire city block (washington, broad, 13th street and carpenter). This is in the middle of the city and nothing is done by the owners Hudson River Capital Holdings to maintain this property. The city doesn’t do enough to penalize property owners who habitually neglect their property. If we all band together, we can probably make the system work.
