Philadelphia Chinatown Community Development Corporation

Beginning in 1966 as a grassroots movement responding to city-planned urban development, Philadelphia Chinatown Community Development Corporation (PCDC) has grown into a prominent nonprofit group, responsible for the planning and redevelopment of the Chinatown community. The group’s goals are three-fold: 1) to protect the neighborhood; 2) to preserve Chinatown’s heritage; and 3) to promote community businesses and residents.  PCDC’s accomplishments include the development of 219 housing units as well as commercial space.  In October 2017, PCDC broke ground on its largest project to date—a $75 million mixed-use space that will include a 17,000 square foot community center, 30,000 square feet of retail/commercial space, and 150 housing units.
