Permits have been filed for the demolition of a vacant two-story prewar rowhouse at 209 North 54th Street in Haddington, West Philadelphia. The former single-family dwelling, which is located on a block between North 54th Street and North Ruby Street, will be torn down as part of the City of Philadelphia Demolition Program. The gross area of the building is 1,200 square feet and the cost of the work is $15,000. The property is owned by Adryane Whitehurst. The contractor listed for the work is Pedro Palmer Construction Inc.
The building is a dilapidated brick-clad structure with an angled canopy above the front porch and a white bay window jutting out of the second floor. The plans call for adding stucco to the to-be-exposed east wall of 211 North 54th Street next door and an erosion control mat with seed on lot. No sidewalk work will be provided.
The 52nd Street station on the Market-Frankford SEPTA line sits two long blocks to the south and five short blocks to the east. Three blocks to the west of the property is the Universal Daroff Charter School located at 5630 Vine Street. A block to the north is the Crystal Bird Fauset House, the former residence of the civil rights activist, social worker, race relations specialist, and the first female African American state legislator elected in the United States.
