The District

Our mission

The goal of the South Street Headhouse District (SSHD) is to provide a safer, cleaner, well-managed business district for the benefit of the entire community. Through constant improvement, we aim to build an engaging and enticing place to work, visit, shop, invest, and live.

The SSHD was established in 1993 as a locally directed Municipal Authority with the purpose of improving public safety, sanitation, and other services to supplement services being provided by the City of Philadelphia.

The SSHD continues to plan and support urban improvements, innovative marketing and promotional initiatives, artistic and creative enhancements, and other developments designed to amplify the image and visibility of our dynamic and diverse business community.
