PHA approves Northeast land deal with Holy Family

At its monthly board meeting Friday, the Philadelphia Housing Authority approved a deal for Holy Family University and a development partnership to convert 32 vacant acres in Northeast Philadelphia into athletic fields, university housing, and affordable senior apartments. About two-thirds of the land – formerly the Liddonfield public-housing complex – will be used for four athletic fields for the private, Catholic university, which has its main campus on Torresdale Avenue. Founded in 1954, Holy Family is run by the Congregation of Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. It has more than 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students at campuses in Northeast Philadelphia and in Bensalem and Newtown Townships in Bucks County.
