A zoning permits has been issued for the construction of a two-family structure at 2251 North 16th Street in the Temple University area in North Philadelphia West. The building will rise on the east side of the block located between West Susquehanna Avenue and West Dauphin Street. The structure’s footprint will span 768 square feet. The building will feature a roof deck with a pilot house. BMG Investments Properties is the listed owner.
The structure will replace a vacant lot sandwiched between two three-story prewar rowhouses. This will be the first development to rise on the block in the postwar period, in a positive reversal of a decades-long decline that has claimed numerous structures in the area, including roughly half of the structures on the block at hand. However, the area has been seeing a real estate resurgence in recent years, in great part thanks Temple University, the city’s largest higher education institution. located within a five-minute walk to the southeast.
The Susquehanna-Dauphin station of the Broad Street SEPTA line also sits within a five-minute walk, offering a 15-minute ride to Center City. Due to the proximity to both Temple University and Center City, we expect to see further growth in the immediate area in the near future.
