About Us

Who are the Humans Behind Philadelphia Zoning?

The purpose of the Philadelphia Zoning team is to simplify the zoning and permitting process for its clients while being accountable and transparent.

Alexa Ahrem, Chief Purpose Officer

Ashley graduated cum laude from Temple University with a Bachelor’s in Urban Studies. After graduation Ashley worked for a think tank in Amman, Jordan. During her time at the Center for the Study of the Built Environment Ashley also completed a semester of Advanced Arabic coursework at Al Qasid Institute.


Today Ashley is a licensed expediter working as City Liaison for Philadelphia Zoning. In this role Ashley has acquired a strong working knowledge of the Philadelphia Zoning Code, as well as all Licensing and Permitting procedure. Ashley hopes to save everyone some time and heartache when it comes to building things, opening businesses, and renovating in our beloved Philadelphia.


Ashley loves plants, dogs, and really tough workouts.

Joseph Console, Esq., Outside Counsel

While working as an expediter, Alexa identified gaps in the Philly market concerning how these services are (and are not) delivered; with a new mission to save people unnecessary time and hardship.


She is a major proponent of entrepreneurship and loves to support business owners and entrepreneurs through Philadelphia Zoning. However, this is way more than permits to her; hence, the Chief PURPOSE Officer. A world where everyone builds and operates what they are best at and passionate about is a world that thrives. Alexa sees how entrepreneurs are unnecessarily challenged through broken systems and wants to transform those realities into something that makes more sense.


Alexa was an entrepreneurship major at Temple where she also competed on the gymnastics team. She founded and ran an electronic music event production company out of college as well as a brand development business. She volunteers on the board of a cat rescue, loves yoga, working out, music, and traveling.  Her mission in life is to help people create true happiness and then go make their dreams a reality.

Ashley Harris, City Liason

Joe Console is Philadelphia Zoning’s outside counsel attorney on projects that have a legal component; such as zoning appeals, abatement appeals, and other real estate related legalities.


Joe is as laid back as he is dedicated to successful and smooth projects, hence the reason we enjoy working with Joe so much. For more on Joe, please check out his firm’s site here.
