Construction has been completed at a four-story, six-unit apartment building at 1721 North 21st Street in Cecil B. Moore, North Philadelphia, near Temple University. Designed by Designblendz, the structure replaces a vacant lot on the east side of the block between Cecil B. Moore and West Montgomery avenues. The building rises from a 2,480-square-foot footprint and offers 10,803 square feet of interior space, which lends a generous average of around 1,800 square feet per apartment. Permits list Structure Labs as the structural engineer, Hutec Engineering as the MEP engineer, and GRIT Construction as the contractor. Construction costs are specified at $1.1 million.
1721 North 21st Street
A zoning permit has been filed for the construction of a six-unit residential structure at 1721 North 21st Street in the Cecil B. Moore neighborhood in North Philadelphia. Since the lot was merged with the adjacent 1723 North 21st Street earlier this year, the proposal may likely consist of a joined three-story townhouse pair situated within an attached or a merged structure, given that the permit calls for two roof decks. The combined structure will span a total of 2,000 square feet of ground space. Aberra Negash A is the listed owner.
