Permits have been issued for the construction of a multi-family building at 4146 Parkside Avenue in the neighborhood of ParksideWest Philadelphia. The building will rise five stories tall with 28 residential units. In total, the new structure will hold 26,960 square feet of space and cost an estimated $4 million to build.

The new building will be replacing a vacant lot.  The available supply of vacant lots in the neighborhood has been shrinking. Its prominent location sits right across the street from Fairmount Park. Additionally, the building will sit in a location surrounded by some of the most elegant architecture in the entire city with beautiful row houses and apartment buildings located throughout the entirety of the area. Although no renderings are available for the project, and its final design fully up for speculation, it will hopefully have a stately and elegant design that will attempt to fit in with its surroundings.

A visit to YIMBY’s neighborhood page on Parkside shows the sizable number of recent permits passing through the L & I system for new construction multi-family buildings. This project is one of the largest proposed in the neighborhood and, considering the many other proposed 5-10 unit buildings, the density of the area will certainly grow.  This should attract more attention from retail and restaurant owners and potentially help spark additional future development.

Transit access is available by means of a short walk from the property to the Route 15 Trolley running on Girard Avenue. No completion date for the project is known at this time.
