40th Street Rowhomes

Homes Built by Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia

Our vision is a city where everyone has a decent place to live. Alongside families, community partners and volunteers, we work to reduce barriers to affordable homeownership in Philadelphia.

Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia is excited to announce the development of 40th Street Rowhomes, four affordable single-family units on North 40th Street in West Philadelphia.  

The homes will be 3-bedroom, 1.5 bath homes located between Reno and Brown Streets. The development will include one wheelchair accessible unit with a first-floor bedroom and a second full bath. All Habitat units are built to Energy Star standards, and thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, all future Habitat homes will be fitted with solar panels as of 2024.

Habitat’s unique Homeownership Program partners with first-time homebuyers who might not otherwise qualify for a traditional mortgage, opening doors of opportunity to build brighter futures for themselves and their families.

For more information, please see our Homeownership Program page.
