Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit has observed that construction work is nearing completion at an 11-townhouse development at 244-58 North 2nd Street in the Old City section of Center City. Designed by LandMark Architectural Design, each townhouse stands four stories tall and spans nearly 5,000 square feet, and feature a cellar, a roof deck, an elevator, and a two-car garage. Permits list OCF Construction as the contractor.
Construction costs are listed at $550,000 per townhouse, with $512,000 allocated toward general construction, 16,000 for mechanical work, $12,500 for plumbing, and $9,500 for electrical work.
While the historicist structures do feature contemporary design elements, 244-58 North 2nd Street is still one of the finest traditional-styled developments currently underway in the city.
