Permits have been issued for four townhouses at 4329 East Thompson Street in Bridesburg. Each will stand four stories tall and feature a roof deck. Construction costs are estimated at $200,000 for each home, with a total of $800,000 for the entire development. Joseph Mulvihill is listed as the project’s design professional and Venco Builders Inc. as the contractor.

The new homes will be replacing a vacant lot, which is one among a small supply of vacant properties in the isolated neighborhood. A small fence fronts the street, with a worn-out gravel driveway leading towards a dilapidated one-story garage that features a tan exterior, and holds almost no strong appeal towards its design. The rest of the property is overgrown with vegetation.

The addition of four new townhouses on a largely vacant property will be an improvement for the area. Due to its somewhat remote location, disconnected from the rest of the city due to Interstate 95, development has largely skipped by the area. However, signs of an increase in development can be observed in the neighborhood, with these four new townhouses being just some of the new developments planned in months prior.

No completion date is known for the project at this time, though construction may be finished by 2022 or 2023.

  1. What an incredible development this is.

    I feel that the staff writer may have completely missed the mark on this one!

    Let’s start with shopping folks.
    You have within a reasonable short drive a Walmart, Chic-fil-A, Target, McDonald’s, Popeyes, ShopRite, Applebees, Taco Bell, Ihop, Wendy’s, Home Depot, etc.

    You are in a very nice neighborhood because of the interstate (isolation can be a very attractive amenity if you value exclusion).

    The property offers luscious lawns and trees.
    The buildings look like your typical Brooklyn fare, so don’t feel so down about it.

    Satellite views show backyards with swimming pools.
    You are limited to street parking, but this property is a step up from Brooklyn.

    The only thing you are missing out on are the subways; however, SEPTA bus routes 25 & J have departures every half-hour as well as bus route 73.

    I’ll give this property a smile. 😀

  2. And guaranteed quiet neighbors to your south: Holy Redeemer Cemetery.
