A permit has been issued for the construction of a four-story structure at 6552 Germantown Avenue in Mount Airy. The building will consist of 10 residential units. It will have easy access to the Chestnut Hill West regional rail line and fronts the busy and frequent 23 bus route. The current site houses a once-attractive row of three homes with vacant retail spaces on the first floor. Those structures are now crumbling and are are possibly no longer salvageable.
Nearby, Main Street Development Company has built a new 36-unit structure and is in the process of constructing a new 67-unit structure with a Grocery Outlet supermarket next door to the existing building.
Mount Airy is an elegant neighborhood in Northwest Philly that has seen large amounts of investment in recent years. The Germantown Avenue corridor includes many businesses and eateries. This new 10-unit project should assist both the neighborhood and the corridor as they continue to grow and develop.
Designblends Home Solutions LLC is listed as the contractor for the project. Estimated construction costs will be $1,820,015.
