Permits have been issued for an interior renovation of 260 West Johnson Street in Germantown, Northwest Philadelphia. The project will create six residential units within the existing three-story structure. An additional apartment will be added within a carriage house also located on the property, adding a total of seven units to the lot. Greenzang Incorporated is the contractor for the project. Construction costs are estimated at $170,000.
The renovations will take place within a gorgeous, classic Northwest Philadelphia-style home. Stone covers the first and second floors of the building, with a red-shingled mansard roof at the third floor. A great circular turret stands on the corner, adding extravagance to the elegant structure. A small yard with garden space separates the building from the street.
The new renovations will bring a small, but still noteworthy density upgrade to the surrounding area. The addition of seven residential units will provide a solid addition to the neighborhood’s housing stock. Additionally, the project ensures the preservation of the existing building and rules out the potential of demolition, a major win for the neighborhood’s and the city’s architectural and historic heritage.
No completion date is known for the project at this time, though construction may be finished by 2022 or 2023.
