Permits have been issued for the construction of The Frankford, a six-story, 107-unit mixed-use residential and retail development planned at 1120 Frankford Avenue (alternately 1120-36 Frankford Avenue Parcel H) in Fishtown. The project spans a through-block lot between Frankford Avenue and Dunton Street, half a block south of Girard Avenue. Designed by BLT Architects, the building will hold 87,200 square feet, of which around more than 10,000 square feet will account for retail on the two lower floors. Permits list US Construction as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $15 million.
1120-36 Frankford Avenue
Last month, Philadelphia YIMBY shared an overview of The Frankford, a six-story, 150-unit mixed-use residential and retail development proposed at 1120 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown, Kensington. Today we take a closer look at the proposal via building elevations, floor plans, and other detail. Designed by BLT Architects and developed by US Construction, the structure (which is also known under its full address of 1120-36 Frankford Avenue) will span nearly 100,000 feet of space, offering 7,166 square feet of ground-level retail and 83,372 square feet of residential space split between units ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments, with studios being the predominant variant. The structure will feature two elevators, storage for 50 bicycles, outdoor space for residents (which includes a dog run), a roof deck, and a green roof. No parking spaces will be included. The proposal is still undergoing the Civic Design Review process, so no permits have yet been filed.
