Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-unit multi-family building at 2238 North 2nd Street in Norris Square, North Philadelphia. The structure will rise four stories tall, with a roof deck located on top of the building that will be accessible via a pilot house. Permits state that the building will hold 3,322 square feet of space and cost an estimated $525,000 to construct.
The new building will replace a vacant lot, as is common for new development in the neighborhood. This particular property is blocked off from the street by a fence, with a mixture of grass and dirt covering the remainder of the lot. The site sits in close proximity to Norris Square Park, which is located two short blocks to the southeast.
Currently, the most active development in the neighborhood takes place in the areas surrounding the park. Many new townhouses and multi-family buildings have filled the area around the park, adding more density. The Market-Frankford Line runs several short blocks to the east, providing convenient transit access to Center City, University City, and beyond.
No completion date is known for the project at this time, though construction may be finished by 2022.
