Permits have been filed for the demolition of a vacant two-story rowhouse at 6044 Chestnut Avenue in Kingsessing, Southwest Philadelphia. The prewar single-family dwelling is located at the south corner of Chester Avenue and South Edgewood Street and will be torn down as part of the City of Philadelphia Demolition Program at a cost of $18,500. The property is owned by Fullwood Ashley Selena Moodie Ann Marie. The contractor listed for the work is Mangual Demolition Inc.
The dilapidated structure is clad in stucco and features a projecting parapet. According to the filing, after demolition, stucco will be added to to-be-exposed wall of 6046 Chestnut Street. The work also calls for the removal of the front and rear sidewalk and an erosion control mat with seed on lot at the site.
The 13 trolley stops a block to the northeast. Several blocks further to the northeast is the Francis Myers Recreational Center at 5801 Kingsessing Avenue. Cobbs Creek Park sits within a 10-minute walk to the northwest.
