I received official zoning approval for both homes today, stamped and signed by the zoning department from the City of Philadelphia. This is a huge step in the development process as zoning in Philadelphia can be very difficult and sometimes delays projects months and even years.
The zoning examiner for our case had made a minor error on our properties by rejecting them for not including parking. He was very quick to admit to and remedy this error and only delayed our approval by a few days. Overall I had a great experience with the City of Philadelphia and everyone was very friendly and helpful during the entire process.
Our next step is to get construction drawings finished and submitted to the city so we can get building permits.
