Bidding war emerges for North Philly land intended for LGBTQ affordable housing

But now, the charity will have to make a big bid on the land at 1315 N. 8th Street at a bankruptcy auction in August, after higher bids came to the table last month, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.

Project HOME intended to purchase some of the parcels from NPHS and build affordable housing for 30 LGBTQ young adults. It would be the organization’s latest project after 2415 North Broad Street, which had about 1,000 applicants for just 88 spots.
