History and Status
Liberty on the River property was purchased in April, 2015 by K4 Philadelphia, LLC from the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 19. Tom Kelly, former president of Local 19 who purchased the property for the Union in 1985, is now a partner in the project, offering K4 Philadelphia his more than 32 years of consistent knowledge of the property.
Since its purchase of the Liberty on the River site, K4 Philadelphia, LLC has addressed and responded to directions and suggestions from numerous relevant federal, state and city authorities, as well as local citizen groups, regarding a range of land use issues, including utilities upgrades, storm water management, PennDOT offsite road issues, Corps of Engineers permitting licenses, and others.
The result: A master plan that brings together and reflects the input of community leaders, the oversight of reviewing agencies, and the vision of K4 Philadelphia, LLC and its team.
