Permits have been filed for the demolition of a vacant two-story prewar rowhouse at 3908 North Fairhill Street in Hunting Park, North Philadelphia. The former single-family dwelling is located between West Pike Street and West Luzerne Street and will come down as part of the City of Philadelphia Demolition Program at a cost of $14,500. William Irma is the property owner. The contractor listed for the work is Pedro Palmer Construction Inc.
The brick-clad structure’s first-floor windows are boarded up, and the second floor features a projecting bay window that is painted red with a white ornamental relief. When the demolition is complete, the work will include an erosion control mat with seed on lot at the site, addition of stucco to the side of 3906 North Fairhill Street, erection of a six-foot-high chain link fence at the front, and replacement of the sidewalk.
The 47 bus stops nearby at the corner of North 5th Street and Pike Street. Two long blocks to the south of the property is the Bayard Taylor School, an elementary school located at 3698 North Randolph Street. Hunting Park sits within a ten-minute walk to the northwest.
