As development has continued unabated in Northern Liberties, some of the good vibes have made their way up to the southern section of Kensington. This neighborhood is a bit of a mixed bag. Some blocks are pretty much intact. Other blocks have a significant amount of vacant land. Still others have old warehouse buildings which are in either in use and well maintained or sitting vacant. In the last couple of years, this area has seen all kinds of redevelopment. Vacant lots are slowly being filled in, warehouses are being converted to apartments and offices, and a couple of very large projects are on the boards that could transform the neighborhood. This is definitely a neighborhood to watch in the years to come, and will become an ever more interesting place to live as more development occurs and additional amenities arrive.
