BUILD Philly (Built environment, Urban, Infrastructure, Land use, and Development) is a new coalition of professional organizations and nonprofits addressing issues in the City of Philadelphia related to the built environment.
On March 14, 2023, BUILDPhilly (Built environment, Urban, Infrastructure, Land use, and Development) — a coalition of 20 professional organizations and nonprofits addressing issues across the City of Philadelphia related to the built environment — hosted a Mayoral Forum. The event showcased six of the Democratic candidates for the next Mayor of Philadelphia as they addressed the concerns of the building industry.
On April 8, 2015, the coalition kicked off with the BUILDPhilly Mayoral Forum, held at the National Museum of American Jewish History. Moderated by PlanPhilly editor Matt Golas, the forum had a turnout of 300 people who engaged in a lively discussion on Philadelphia's built environment with four Mayoral candidates, Nelson Diaz, Anthony Williams, Lynne Abraham, and Jim Kenney.
