Urban Revival

AGA is dedicated to bring about urban revival in working class neighborhoods in Philadelphia, including Fishtown and South Kensington. 

This time last year, Sean Killeen and Frank Mazzio from AGA Developers announced their newest project, South Square. Since then they have neared completion of the property, nearly sold all the units, and announced a new project in Old City

In an exposé about the Market-Frankford line, Billy Penn and the Philadelphia Inquirer determined that the El has become extremely important to the Philadelphia’s continued growth. New data from SEPTA has connected the city’s most-used transit line to the flurry of development and mini population boom in the Kensington and Fishtown areas.

Philadelphia has experienced a surge in urban revival over the past few years, specially in neighborhoods like Fishtown, Point Breeze, and South Kensington. Business owners and homeowners alike have flocked to these areas in search of new opportunities within city limits. Among those people who have recognized the revitalization of these areas is AGA Developers. 

The Philadelphia housing market has fully recovered from the crisis of 2008 as the average price of a home in the city achieves record-high value, according to a Drexel University report. 

AGA’s South Square development is earning a lot of attention as buzz about the emerging South Kensington real estate market moves from "best kept secret" to "next great neighborhood" mode in local Philadelphia media.

Amalgam, a Philadelphia comic book store and coffeehouse, announced its opening in December 2015 with a profile in the Daily News. A few weeks earlier, a new distillery, Federal Distilling, set up shop nearby. 

It's restaurant week in Philly, which for some means a whirlwind of eating out downtown — and others, a wish to escape the crowds. The answer, according the Philadelphia Magazine's FooBooz section, is fabulous Fishtown.

AGA Developers once again joins a neighborhood teeming with hidden wonders. Our latest projects in Fishtown are with-in walking distance of the newly-ordained Best Pizza in America!

Exterior work on four of the six Trenton Stables properties is close to wrapping up. Window bays are cladded with aluminum composite and a smooth Dryvit finish has been applied to the fourth floor. Dryvit "outsulation" combines a beautiful look and superior energy efficiency. Combined with superior materials, floor-to-ceiling windows and EnergyStar appliances, Trenton Stables offers luxury townhomes and an opportunity for urban green living.  

For the past few years, Philadelphia Inquirer real estate reporter Alan J. Heavens has been plugging away at profiling each and every community in the Delaware Valley. This month he finally turned his attention to Fishtown, the Little Neighborhood That Could, a former hub of shad-fishing in the Lower Northeast section of Philadelphia.
