https://www.ncfive.com/

NC Five is a transformative development in North Philadelphia that is located steps away from the Temple University SEPTA regional rail stop. The 2.6-acre site includes 3 buildings and 133 units of housing, serving residents from 20% AMI to market rate. There are 45 RAD units for households at 20% and 50% AMI, 66 LIHTC units at 50% and 60% AMI, and 22 workforce housing units.  The buildings include a mix of studios, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 3 bedroom units.

The development includes a variety of resident amenities that will offered free of charge to all residents. The amenities include a community room with lounge seating, warming kitchen, and activity tables, a fitness center, a computer room and study library, exterior landscaped courtyard with community gardens and electric grills, package lockers, secure bike storage, and on-site management staff.

Our community is designed to bring the soothing elements of nature into our resident’s daily life. Inside, abundant natural light and thoughtful design touches create a calming, tranquil environment. Outdoors, our beautiful gardens, landscaped courtyard, and green gathering spaces will become urban sanctuaries for our residents to enjoy.

With thoughtful outdoor spaces and environmentally responsible construction, NC Five is meant to promote personal well-being and community resource conservation. Families will flourish with toxin-free finishes, healthy indoor air quality, cost-saving appliances, and an edible community garden.

NC Five was designed to Enterprise Green Communities (EGC) standards. EGC ensures that the building is highly energy efficient, well-insulated, and well-sealed against leaks and drafts from the outside. The Enterprise Green Communities designation also requires that the building meets Energy Star 3.0 standards.
