Welcome to the Commons

Anchored by the decommissioned historic brewery, the Schmidt’s Commons is a mixed-use district and residential community for Philadelphians seeking a home off the beaten path. Located in the heart of Northern Liberties, this 15-acre district was once home to Schmidt’s, Philly’s largest and most famous brewery, established in 1860. Today, with its thriving ecosystem of culture, commerce, and top-shelf food and beverage, the Schmidt’s Commons offers an unparalleled experience in which to live, work, and play – differently.

About us

Philadelphia’s sixth public square, the award-winning Commons surrounds residents with art, culture, and one dynamic public space.

Anchored in history, inspired by NoLibs culture

With the 80-year-old Schmidts Brewery at the heart of the Commons, this district imbues the richness of its past with the spirit of the neighborhood today – melding industrial roots with contemporary tastes and culture.
