Frankford Avenue

The Kensington and Fishtown sections of the city are prime examples of neighborhoods that are experiencing an economic renaissance thanks to strategic private and public investments. Nowhere is this more evident than on Frankford Avenue, where PIDC has supported local developer Roland Kassis as he transforms the area into a vibrant mix of retail, office space and restaurants, including Frankford Hall, an authentic German bier garten which opened in 2011 and has quickly become a catalyst for additional development. After Frankford Hall, PIDC worked with Kassis on the next phase of development in partnership with the Starr Restaurant Organization and project collaborator Joe Carroll to bring a Brooklyn BBQ to Philadelphia with Fette Sau.
