A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has discovered that a construction has been cleared for a seven-story, 108-unit multi-family project at 2000-20 East Hagert Street in East Kensington. The development will rise on a site bound by East Hagert Street to the east, Emerald Street to the north, and East Boston Street to the west. Designed by T + Associates, the structure will span 93,832 square feet and will include 13 artist studios and underground parking for 19 cars, as well as space for 37 bicycles. The project will also include a green roof and a roof deck.

When YIMBY last visited the site in April, the auto service facility at the location was already shuttered yet demolition work had not yet begun. Since that time, the single-story service garage had been demolished and the parking lot had been torn up. Compared to its previous occupant, and considering its transit adjacency (the York-Dauphin Station on the Market-Frankford Line is situated within a five-minute walk to the west), the new development will make for much better use of the space; the only regret, albeit minor, that we have about the development is the loss of a mural that once adorned the facility, and the likely blocking of another mural that still spans above the site.

In recent years, the surrounding area has seen a large volume of new, predominantly mid-rise residential, construction. This development generally replaces underutilized properties, such as the one at hand, and makes for much more effective use of scarce subway-adjacent city land.

  1. The amount of development in this little pocket of East Kensington is absolutely wild, but love to see it.
