Construction Underway at 1700 North Front Street in Fishtown
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has observed that construction work has made significant progress at a five-story, 204-unit development at 1700 North Front Street in Fishtown. The large-footprint structure replaces a block-spanning parking lot bound by the elevated-train-capped Front Street to the east, Cecil B. Moore Avenue to the south, Hope Street to the west, and Palmer Street to the north. Designed by NORR, the 172,844-square-foot structure will include 123,218 square feet of residential space (including 28 studios, 141 one-bedroom units, 35 two-bedroom apartments, and a 5,264-square-foot amenity suite) and 16,429 square feet of retail. The project will also offer parking for 70 bicycles.
