Permits have been issued for a four-story, five-unit multi-family structure at 1716 West Girard Avenue in Francisville, North Philadelphia. The building will include a cellar; all units will be apartments. The building will feature 7,502 square feet of space, with an estimated construction cost of $650,000.
The building will replace a vacant lot, the only vacant site on the block. The property currently consists of a grass lawn between two stately prewar rowhomes. When completed, the building will rise prominently above its immediate surroundings. The project will likely feature a modern façade that will stand out among its surroundings.
Transit access is available via the route 15 trolley, directly adjacent to the site. A longer walk leads to the Girard Station on the Broad Street SEPTA line.
No completion date has been announced for the project.
