A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has noted considerable construction progress at the rowhouse component of the multi-building development at 2101 Washington Avenue in Graduate Hospital, South Philadelphia. The townhouse portion of the project rises north of the proposed six-story mixed-use building, and consists of 40 four-story, two-family dwellings, arranged in two rows of 20 and separated by a mid-block drive aisle. The first phase of the rowhouses, situated along Kimball Street, has already been completed; the following phase, located immediately to the south, is still in various stages of construction. The typical structure will span 2,416 square feet and will feature a roof deck and parking. Permits list OCF Construction as the contractor and a construction cost of $250,000 per rowhouse.
When YIMBY last visited the site in January, the first phase has already been completed and framing was underway at the following phase, starting with the eastern section of the group. Our latest site visit shows considerable progress, with the eastern section already largely completed. An attractive brick facade sports shallow vertical niches that give the development a sense of verticality, texture, and rhythm. Rowhouses in the central section are yet to receive cladding, and the buildings in the western portion are currently at the ground-level assembly stage.
Notably, excavation for the mixed-use building has also appeared to have made slight progress. As the rowhouses rapidly take shape, we look forward to an acceleration of development at the mixed-use building, as the development team may presumably be able to dedicate more of its resources to its assembly.
