Philly puts aside $3.4M more for Sharswood properties

Take for example, 2323 Harlan Street. The housing authority deposited $1,800 as just compensation for the 480-square foot vacant lot — for comparison the city assessed it at $2,300. But city tax records show that the previous property owner owes the city $5,905 in delinquent taxes and fees.

Before PHA took ownership of 1324 N. 22nd, the property had been owned by the same person since 1925 — William Lipshutz, city records show. But the authority and redevelopment authority listed the owner as Louis and Zelma Lipschutz.

All three people had a second listed address of 315 N. 2nd Street, where the redevelopment authority sent its condemnation notice. That address, however, does not exist in...

    Philly puts aside $3.4M more for Sharswood properties
    The Philadelphia Housing Authority set aside the last batch of millions owed to property owners whose homes, businesses and vacant lots were taken through the 2015 Sharswood eminent domain plan. On Friday, the authority deposited $3.4 million into a court-held account for 439 condemned properties that have yet to settle up with the authority.

Philly Housing Authority took their homes two years ago. They are still waiting to get paid

For example,  two vacant properties on the same block — 2426 and 2422 Bolton Street — were assessed by city assessors at $29,300 each in 2015. Both are vacant, three-story, 1,200-square foot homes. Yet, the housing authority paid $4,500 for 2422 Bolton and  $25,000 for 2426 Bolton.

For 1331 N. 23rd Street, the authority initially offered $18,000 to owner Angel Pinkett. He contested it with the Board of View and was awarded $38,000. The house’s assessed value is even higher — $43,600.

In June, 57 new housing units opened on the 2300 block of Jefferson Street, where the imploded high rises once stood. That was Phase 1 of the 10-phase project, funded through a tax credit for low-income housing.

    Philly Housing Authority took their homes two years ago. They are still waiting to get paid
    It's been two years since hundreds of residents were displaced and more than 1,300 properties were condemned through eminent domain to make way for a massive redevelopment of the Sharswood neighborhood and notorious Blumberg housing projects. Yet, only 10 percent of the 800 privately-owned properties seized have been paid for.
