Residents in North Philadelphia speak out against gentrification

In terms of real estate, Philadelphia is currently going through major changes. As parts of the city gentrify, often the seeds of dispute are sewn by the new supplanting the old, and by economic forces flexing their muscles. Citizens on either side of a dispute should be aware of the goings-on at planning meetings and zoning hearings.

City council: No new doctors' offices in Northeast Philadelphia

It's not uncommon for a city zoning code to require certain kinds of businesses to obtain a zoning variance before setting up shop. Business groups can oppose the implementation of such requirements, but when they're in place, a business owner or developer may have to appear before a zoning board to seek rezoning or a variance. It is a good idea, then, to have a real estate attorney on your side.

Cherry Hill residents fight rental development

Residents in a Philadelphia suburb are banding together and organizing to fight against an apartment complex that has been proposed for the area. The battle began when a resident in the area discovered that the 152--unit rental development was being planned near Brace and Kressen roads, where a lumber store used to sit. The resident learned of the residential real estate development not through community leaders, but through a flyer that was placed on his windshield.

Now, it might finally come to fruition after he tabled the idea for some time.

Pennsylvania court upholds zoning board denial

A Pennsylvania appellate court has upheld a lower court's ruling that agreed with a zoning board's decision, blocking a developer from building a residential unit for parolees and pre-release inmates. Zoning regulations can be restrictive, and some people can use them to stop a development that they don't want to happen.
