The Beury building has been vacant for more that 40 years. Since 2012, Shift Capital has set out on a journey to revitalize the heart of North Philadelphia.
At the heart of North Philadelphia sits the 3700 block of North Broad Street at the intersection of Broad, Erie, and Germantown, three primary arteries of Philadelphia.
Over the last several decades, the intersection has thrived as an epicenter for the surrounding community of North Philadelphia but has struggled against a lack of institutional investment and long-term commitment to the community residents and businesses.
The block is dominated by the imposing structure of the once strong and proud Beury Building, a 14-story, 112,000 square-foot Art Deco skyscraper completed in 1933 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Starting with the redevelopment of the existing Beury Building, the “new” Beury will be revisioned combining both old and new to reinvigorate an intersection, a community, and, in turn, North Philadelphia.
