Completed in 2013 at a cost of $48 million, Paseo Verde is a multifamily rental development project, consisting of one hundred and twenty (120) units.
Paseo Verde, codeveloped by Asociacion Puertorriquenos en Marcha and Jonathan Rose Cos. with Wallace Roberts & Todd architects. It’s featured location at 9th and Berks is in the area of North Philadelphia around the Temple University campus. The development includes a variety of living spaces; 50 of which rent for market rate while the 70 others are regulated low-income housing.
In addition to the living spaces there is a pharmacy, medical center, and several community organizations which are located on the street-level.
The polished “PR” review of the project will tell you that everything is amazing, and that the project is a shining example of modern design and ecological friendly living. However, over the past few years many in the community see the project as a prime example of gentrification and failed on-site management.
Recent reviews from residents include scathing remarks, such as; “Temple Students: STAY AWAY. This is brand new and is already falling apart with a useless management!” and “Guys, this place is disgusting.”
With this public community forum focused on the Paseo Verde project, the goal is to improve on the standard of care and management of our neighborhood. Having issues such as crime, and lack of public services, it is imperative that we bring attention to these issues so that we can all have a better standard of living
