PHILADELPHIA | African American Museum of Philadelphia and Family Court Building | 300+ FT | 30 FLOORS

National Real Estate Development and Frontier Development & Hospitality Group have been selected to transform the former Family Court building into a boutique hotel and build a new location for the African American Museum in Philadelphia on a neighboring surface parking lot along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

The 247,196-square-foot former Family Court building at 1801 Vine St. is planned to include a restaurant, bar and event space in addition to the hotel.

The new African American Museum in Philadelphia would be built on the 88,000-square-foot parking lot at 1901 Wood St., which is managed by the Philadelphia Parking Authority.

The development is estimated to be completed in 2028 at the earliest, but the complexity of the project, which includes historic rehabilitation, could force it to take longer.
