Mortgage rates in Philadelphia rose this week. And a new commercial real estate project, with plenty of shopping, may break ground in the suburbs of Philly next year.

This week's rates

The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in Philadelphia rose to 4.27 percent from 4.23 percent, according to the Bankrate.com national survey of large lenders. The mortgages in this week's survey had an average total of 0.23 discount and origination points. Nationally, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.17 percent.

Bryn Mawr may get some new shopping options

Early next year, construction could start on a $20 million mixed-use commercial real estate project in the Bryn Mawr area of Greater Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Located on Lancaster Avenue, the 60,000-square-foot project, called Bryn Mawr Village, will include retail space and office space. The developer is currently requesting approval.
