Philly YIMBY is an initiative from 5th Square to build grassroots support for infill housing, with the aim of increasing housing availability, affordability, and choice. We are especially interested in supporting multi-family projects with significant numbers of units (5+), a mixed-use commercial component, and low parking ratios (less than 3:10). Send tips to phillyyimby@gmail.com or post in our Facebook group.
