Philadelphia Housing Authority Invests in Strawberry Mansion Apartments

The Philadelphia Housing Authority just made a $23,000,000 investment on 55 new energy-efficient apartments in the Strawberry Mansion area.

The area could ideally be a perfect spot for real estate investors due to its convenient location to Fairmount park and Wissahickon Valley Park.
