Permits have been issued for the construction of a new multi-family structure at 1932 North 6th Street in North Philadelphia East. The new structure will stand three stories tall, with a roof deck at the top, while holding three residential units. In total, the structure will yield 4,338 square feet of space, and cost an estimated $300,000 to build.

As one could likely predict for a new development in this area, the project will rise on presently vacant land. Directly to the property’s south, a string of new three-story building added a handful of new residential units to the block. To the immediate north, a couple of other small vacant land parcels still exist, although these are quickly vanishing with the arrival of newer structures farther up the block. The site is situated at the rear of Cousin’s Supermarket. Transit access is provided not far to the west along Broad Street as well as to Regional rail at Temple University.

Overall, this particular property is actually one of few remaining on the block; a testament to the area’s massive development boom. Just a few years ago, this swag of North Philadelphia to the east of Temple University was riddled with vacant lots, which consumed a major portion of the area’s land, although more recent development trends have seen these properties disappear at a rapid rate in turn for new construction since-family and multi-family buildings. These structures have returned many residents back to the area, therefore raising the density of the neighborhood as well.

No completion date is known for the project at this time.
