100 Properties, $32 Million, 1,102 Years

A map of real estate tax delinquency. Philly style.

View Philadelphia’s Biggest Real Estate Delinquencies in a full screen map

The above map features the 100 properties that represent the 100 largest real estate tax delinquencies in the City of Philadelphia, totaling more than $32 million over a cumulative 1,102 years of delinquency.


The biggest single account tops out at over $8 million, an amount accrued in just five years at 1499 South Christopher Columbus Boulevard, the site of the not-to-be Foxwoods Casino. Meanwhile, I'm guessing that taxpayers can bid adieu to the $4.8 million owed by the 20 properties that have been delinquent for 20 or more years, which include addresses at 15th and Market and on the 1300 block of Walnut Street.

Click on a pin for individual property information. Note that the pins are color coded based on length of delinquency, as indicated in the legend beneath the map.

    What’s behind the non-collection efforts? There’s enough interest in Philly real estate that someone will step up if these current owners default. Why the hands-off approach?
