Facade Work Underway at 1408-18 East Oxford Street in Fishtown
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has noted considerable construction progress at a four-story, 42-unit residential project at 1408-18 East Oxford Street in Fishtown. The new development rises on the northwest corner of Oxford and Belgrade streets, half a block east of Frankford Avenue and a block and a half east of Front Street. Designed by Ambit Architecture, the building will span 41,211 square feet and feature 32 parking spaces and full sprinkling. Renderings indicate that the project will be called the National Metal Crafters Building, as seen from a large marquee at the parapet and a smaller sign at the street level. Permits list Level Up Development as the contractor and a construction cost of $5.25 million.
