Permits have been issued for a residential conversion of a three-story prewar structure at 1135 Spring Garden Street in Poplar, North Philadelphia. The three-story building will hold 14 new apartments. UIG Construction is the contractor. The renovation of the 9,158 square foot structure is expected to cost $45,000.

The renovated building features an elegant façade. red-brown brick is utilized throughout the exterior, with gray stone as trim that is the most prominent feature of the building. Two bay windows rise the entire height of the building on opposite sides of the structure. An ornate crown tops off the beautiful old structure.

The building was formerly used for religious purposes, affiliated with the now-shuttered chapel next door. The added density is a positive for the neighborhood. To the west, the nearby Spring Garden station on the Broad Street SEPTA line offers transit access. The site also sits within walking distance of Center City. The Rail Park is located within a short walk to the south, providing green space with views of the skyline.

No completion date is known yet for the project.

  1. Right next to the shuttered church, a developer wants to tear it down due to its poor condition and build housing/apartments yet the city will not let him do it because of unreasonable neighbors and historical advocates Any update on this?

    And L & I recently issued a demolition permit for a Polish Catholic Church in Fishtown due to falling stones after a group of Polish Catholics fought to save the church for years A developer will erect apartments.

    Bottom line, both churches need to come down due to structural issues

    • If I remember correctly, you always post about demolishing everything on Naked Philly.

      Stop being such a philistine and try having a little appreciation for history, architecture and craftsmanship like the rest of us. Geesh…

  2. How do you convert a three-story building into 14 apartments for only $45,000?
