Permits have been issued for the construction of a four-story, 17-unit multi-family development at 1502-08 North 25th Street in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. The building will include a basement, a green roof, and a roof deck, which will likely offer sweeping views of the skyline. The structure will hold 4,700 square feet of space and cost an estimated $1,885,000 to build, according to the permit.
The development will replace an industrial property. A masonry wall meets the sidewalk at the street with multiple garage doors, behind which is an open-air concrete pad, a remnant of an old structure. As the neighborhood is rapidly developing around the site, the structure is no longer the best use for the property, and a high-density proposal such as the one planned will support the improvement and the upward growth of the neighborhood.
Brewerytown has become one of Philadelphia’s hottest neighborhoods on the development scene a few years ago and has since welcomed a large number of new single-family homes and apartment buildings, many replacing vacant parcels and transforming the neighborhood. More recently, as demand for residential units in the area appears to be expanding, more multi-family and mixed-use proposals have been arriving, adding to the local density.

No completion date for the project is known at this time, though construction may be finished by 2023.
