Frankford Avenue is the commercial core of Kensington cutting through and serving the adjacent Kensington neighborhoods of Fishtown, East Kensington, and Olde Richmond. Historically working class neighborhoods, the demographics in these neighborhoods are changing, particularly in Fishtown, with an influx of younger and more affluent households. Together with the momentum of redevelopment activity from neighborhoods south of Kensington, the development and appeal of Frankford Avenue as an arts corridor has helped spur recent investments along the corridor and in adjacent Kensington neighborhoods. This is evidenced by recent household growth and building permit activity. According to permit records from the City of Philadelphia, over 230 new construction permits were filed in the 19125 ZIP code in the last year alone, with 20 filed on Frankford Ave. New mixed‐use developments on Frankford Ave include Frankford Square, a 14‐unit luxury townhouse development with first‐floor commercial space, and a proposed 170‐unit multi‐family development with ground‐floor commercial. With an active business association and targeted corridor management providing technical support to businesses, streetscape improvements, and promotional events, opening up shop on Frankford Ave has never been easier.
