Permits have been filed for the demolition of a vacant two-story single-family dwelling at 230 North Ruby Street in Haddington, West Philadelphia. The prewar rowhouse is located between Race Street and Vine Street and will be torn down as part of the City of Philadelphia Demolition Program at a cost of $17,770. The property is owned by North Ruby Street Inc. The contractor listed for the work is Pedro Palmer Construction Inc.

The building features a beige brick exterior with a sunken porch at the ground level and a bay window with chipping paint at the second floor. Once the structure is demolished, stucco will be applied to the future blank walls of 228 and 232 North Ruby Street. The sidewalk will also be replaced, an erosion control mat with seed on lot will be placed at the site, and the large tree out front of the property will be cut and ground down to a stump.

The 30 bus stops half a block north of the property. The Crystal Bird Fauset House, former home of the civil rights activist and the first female African American state legislator elected in the United States, sits half a block to the north. West Mill Creek Playground sits within a 10-minute walk to the northeast.
