Philadelphia’s industrial economy has a vibrant and productive history. The Byberry Industrial Parks in Far Northeast Philadelphia, in particular, play an important part in that rich history. These parks were once the site of a state-owned hospital and farm complex. Since its inception, PIDC has managed the City’s industrial land inventory, acquiring, improving and selling more than 3,200 acres of land throughout the city.

Totaling more than 600 acres along the Philadelphia border with Bucks County, the Byberry Industrial Parks have supported extensive investment and development in this corner of Philadelphia since the first transaction with Gould Technologies in 1985. Over the years tens of millions of dollars in private investment has helped create more than 7,000 family-sustaining industrial jobs in the city. Companies such as FedEx, Origlio Beverage Co., the National Archives, Almo Company, and Max Levy Autograph, among others, have called the Byberry Industrial Parks their home.

With only a handful of development parcels remaining, the Byberry Industrial Parks continue to serve as an attractive location for investment, as evidenced by the Transwestern Companies’ decision to acquire a 15-acre parcel to construct the first speculative logistics facility in Philadelphia’s history.
