where The Beury Building is once again an
integral driving force in the community. ”
The Beury building has been vacant for more that 40 years.
The challenges to its revitalization are complex and challenging. Since 2012,
Shift Capital has set out on a journey to revitalize the heart of North Philadelphia.
Shift Capital recapitalizes the project in 2012, with a renewed focus to realize a development plan that is both impactful and feasible.
With full support of the community, applied to OHCD in 2014 and PHFA in 2015 with a program of senior affordable housing and a health clinic. This effort was unsuccessful.
Partnered with Bethesda Project in Fall of 2015 to realize a vision to integrate health services with a unique model to target the most disenfranchised in the city.
Working jointly, Bethesda and Shift applied for OHCD and PHA funds in 2015 and were unsuccessful. The team will work with the city and community this year to strengthen its application for 2016.
