The North Broad Street property will be developed with one building consisting of 88 units of affordable housing, and will include retail on the ground level. The site is located convenient to public transportation and Temple University, in what the North Broad Street Plan identifies as an opportunity zone, or prime development area.
The area currently has many underutilized buildings and lots with a proximity to a large, active educational institution and public transportation. 2415 North Broad Street is located in the “North Philadelphia Transit Hub” section of North Broad Street. This area is a transportation hub and identified in the North Broad Street Plan as an ideal location for transit-oriented development.
The addition of housing and mixed-use buildings will build upon the previous investment in retail. The 2415 North Broad Street project supports the City’s goals of development on the North Broad Street Corridor: to reestablish North Broad Street as a mixed-use urban area, to promote Philadelphia’s image as a “walker’s city” and to build connections along the North Broad Street corridor.

With a transformational leadership gift from Leigh and John Middleton, Project HOME created a public/private initiative to end and prevent chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia. The Middleton Partnership comprises visionary leaders who have joined with Leigh and John Middleton to ensure that together we realize this bold goal. 2415 North Broad Street will be the fifth Middleton Partnership project.
Since 2011, Project HOME and its community partners have created a new strategic and collaborative approach to provide housing, healthcare, education, and employment. Under Project HOME’s lead, the Partnership has identified the longest-term and most vulnerable people living on the streets and developed a comprehensive program of permanent housing (with services designed to break the cycle of homelessness) and also the necessary capacity to prevent chronic street homelessness in the future.
In addition, the Partnership will pilot evidence-based practices in drug- and alcohol-free housing coupled with employment, leading to greater economic independence for people struggling with addiction and chronic street homelessness. To prevent future homelessness, the Partnership will create new permanent supportive housing with strong education and employment opportunities targeted to youth aging out of foster care or who are experiencing homelessness.
The financial leverage and collaborative impact of the Middleton Partnership allows Project HOME to greatly expand its housing and services, including building six new residential programs with a total of 500 additional housing units – doubling overall housing capacity – and a new wellness center offering integrated health care services including primary, behavioral health, and dental care, together with wellness programs. Not only does the Middleton Partnership help Project HOME carry out its mission of ending homelessness, it generates economic and fiscal impacts throughout the City of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
On a daily basis, we witness the tremendous strength and courage of men and women who have overcome homelessness. And daily, we experience what happens when a community with a shared vision comes together – what Jon Bon Jovi calls “The Power of We.” Together, we can seize this opportunity and make the ambitious hope of ending chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia a reality. We invite every sector of society to join us in this hope – and help make Philadelphia the first major City in our nation to end and prevent chronic street homelessness.

None of us are home until all of us are home, and at Project HOME this means that we can all have a decent standard of living today without compromising our needs in the future. When thinking about the footprints – the waste, the greenhouse gases, the toxins – we leave behind through our daily living, we must recognize that the earth is our home.
This is why Project HOME has made sustainability a priority for current and future developments. Sustainability is based on a simple principle: everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Thus, our goal is to ensure that all developments reflect the shared values of economic, social, and environmental sustainability by:
- Decreasing energy usage
- Constructing all new buildings to meet Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification guidelines
- Reducing fuel use of Project HOME vehicles
- Procuring more sustainable products
- Reducing waste
- Engaging Project HOME community members in sustainability efforts
- Supporting neighborhood sustainability
- Increasing access to healthy foods for residents and community members
Guided by these principles, we’ve taken sustainability from offices to residences, and even to gardens to promote energy and waste reduction, environmental education and justice, and health and wellness for all.
