A zoning permit has been filed for the construction of a single-family residential structure at 453 Farson Street in Mill Creek, West Philadelphia. The building will span a 550-square-foot footprint and will feature a roof deck. IRA Development LLC and Yucel Enis are the listed owners and Maher Abdelaal is the designer.

The building will be located on the east side of the street and will rise from a vacant grass lot. It will stand next to a two-story prewar rowhouse with a gabled porch and a bay window, part of an ensemble that lines most of the surrounding blocks.

The property sits three blocks west of Mill Creek Playground and two blocks south of West Mill Creek Playground, which winds across five blocks in a pattern that appears to follow the original creek. The 46th Street Station of the Market-Frankford SEPTA line is located within a 15-minute walk to the southeast.

Mill Creek is a dense rowhouse neighborhood that fared rather well in the postwar period, with most of its housing stock still intact. However, it has barely seen any development during the interval. 453 Farson Street will be the first postwar development on the block and one of the first in the area. However, more development may be in the works in the near future, given the surge in recent filings in nearby neighborhoods such as Mantua, Belmont, and Haverford North, which itself is an extension of the construction boom in nearby University City.
