STATUS: FUTURE PLAN
The South District is commonly known as South Philadelphia. Some of the historic smaller neighborhoods contained within South Philadelphia include Grays Ferry, Whitman, Pennsport, and Point Breeze.
The South District is primarily residential and dominated by single-family rowhouse development mostly constructed between 1850 and 1910. Commercial corridors include Washington Avenue, Passyunk Avenue, Point Breeze Avenue, Snyder Avenue, Oregon Avenue, 9th Street and 7th Street. Key issues include residential vacancy particularly in Grays Ferry, Point Breeze and along the 7th street corridor, commercial corridor identity and viability, limited access to open space, and connections to the Schuylkill and Delaware riverfronts.
