What do you call a perpetually “up-and-coming” neighborhood once it’s permanently arrived? A foregone conclusion, at least in the case of Northern Liberties. This former manufacturing district first started turning heads in the early ‘90s, when a progressive, artist-heavy flock, lured by cheap studio space, began migrating north from Old City.
Already a hotbed of enviro-friendly construction, NoLibs’ value was further boosted by the additions of Liberties Walk and the Piazza at Schmidts, ambitious mixed-use complexes that reimagined overlooked industrial bones. Long established as a force, NoLibs has become an economic and cultural influence on the neighborhoods around it.
