Permits have been filed for the demolition of a two-story rowhouse at 2606 Reed Street in Grays Ferry, South Philadelphia. The single-family building is located near the corner of Reed Street and 26th Street, situated on the south side of the street between a vacant lot to the east and another rowhouse to the west. The property is owned by 1107 Emily Street LLC.
The building is clad in a patchwork of red and black brick and features a stoop and a raised basement. The structure spans an 885-square-foot footprint. No contractor is listed on the document.
Just down the street to the west from the property is the Universal Alcorn Charter School Middle Years Academy, located at 1319 South 26th Street. There are also a few churches on the same block as the middle school, as is the Philadelphia Pentecost International Worship Center, which is split up into two buildings. Not many businesses surround the property as Grays Ferry is mostly made up of residential homes. Four blocks to the south is the Vare Recreation Center that includes a large field, two basketball courts, and a public pool at 2600 Morris Street.
