A permit has been issued for 625 West Girard Avenue in the of Ludlow neighborhood in North Philadelphia. The permit calls for the construction of a six-story structure with 49 apartments. The site was once home to a decrepit three story structure and the remains of a separate structure next door. Both buildings have been demolished.
The project will be located right in on the 15 trolley line (temporarily a bus service), and will be steps away from the Girard El station.
Continuum Architecture And Design
is listed as the designer for the project. Rock Construction and Development LLC is listed as the contractor. Construction for the new building is estimated at $5 Million.
Ludlow lies just northwest of the booming Northern Liberties neighborhood, and has seen tons of new development in recent years. The addition of 49 units will act as a great density boost to the neighborhood.
