The Poplar neighborhood in North Philadelphia is seeing an influx of proposals in recent months. At 1030 West Girard Avenue, a second phase is being proposed as an extension to a project that is already rising. The new 120-unit residential building, developed by Michael Alhadad, will rise six stories and complete the full-block complex between West Girard Avenue to the north, West Harper Street to the south, North 10th Street to the east, and North 1th Street to the west. Phase two will take up the western half of the block, which currently houses a metal-sheathed, gable-roofed warehouse.
