Permits have been filed for the demolition of a vacant three-story single-family dwelling at 2123 North Woodstock Street in North Philadelphia West. The prewar property is located on a block that is in between West Diamond Street and West Susquehanna Avenue. The structure will be torn down as part of the City of Philadelphia Demolition Program. The cost of work is $16,799. The property is owned by Julia Scott. Thomas Curran is the listed contractor.
When the boarded-up, brick-clad building will come down, the vacant lot will effectively extend the existing vacant lot to the north. Once the demolition is complete, the site will receive an erosion control mat with seed on lot, stucco will be added to the northern lot wall of 2121 North Woodstock Street next door, and the sidewalk will be replaced replacement in front of the building to be demolished.
The school that is closest to the property is the Fredrick Douglas Mastery Charter School located at 2118 West Norris Street, decked out with painted murals on the west face of the building. The 33 and 39 buses stop half a block away at West Diamond Street and West Susquehanna Avenue, respectively. Temple University sits within a 15-minute walk to the southeast.
