Permits have been issued for the construction of a multi-family structure at 4074-86 Haverford Avenue (alternately 4070 Haverford Avenue) in West Powelton, West Philadelphia. The building will stand four stories and feature a roof deck atop the structure, accessible via multiple pilot houses. The building will hold 43 residential units, as well as accessory surface parking. The 34,506-square-foot structure will cost an estimated $3 million to build.
Renderings show a modern structure utilizing white, gray, and black cladding. The new structure will replace a single-story building with a plain façade that is somewhat dilapidated and is not contributing much to the growing corridor, so the addition of a more modern multi-family structure that will bring more residents to the area would make much better use of the site. The incoming residential units will bring new customers to local businesses, and will contribute to the continued push of the University City development boom farther out into West Philadelphia.
No completion date is known at this time, though the building may be finished by 2022 or 2023.
