Permits have been issued for the construction of a multi-family structure at 1825 West Diamond Street in the Temple University area in North Philadelphia. The development will stand three stories tall and hold five residential units. Designed by KCA Design Associates, the building will hold 7,240 square feet of space and cost an estimated $1 million to build. 1825 Diamond Street LLC is the listed owner.

The new building will replace a vacant lot, one among a quickly dwindling supply in the neighborhood. Two properties to the east, permits were issued for a five-unit building at 1829 West Diamond Street, also designed by KCA Design Associates, which YIMBY shared with readers back in February. Between the two projects, ten residential units are set be added to the block, a major density increase that is a a part of the neighborhood’s continued growth.

The historic, Neo-Gothic Church of the Advocate is located at 1801 West Diamond Street half a block to the east. However, Temple University, located within a 15-minute walk to the southeast, will likely be the main selling point for the property, which will probably be marketed to university students or workers of the college. As the neighborhood continues to see new projects, new businesses will be attracted to the neighborhood, bringing further development and density to the area.

No completion date is known at this time, though construction may be finished by early 2022.
