Philadelphia YIMBY’s month-long First Anniversary Countdown, which looks at the most frequently mentioned article categories over the course of the past year, makes it past the one-third-of-the-way mark as it finds the neighborhood of Fishtown at the 20th place, with a total of 40 category tags. It is hardly surprising to see this well-known, long-running development hotspot among last year’s top 20 most frequently mentioned categories. If anything, it is impressive that the increasingly built-out neighborhood is still churning out new development at such a consistent rate even after more than twenty years of steady growth.
1BRKS is a multi-building development located by the elevated Market-Frankford Line on Front Street. The development is situated at the intersection of Olde Kensington and Fishtown, two vibrant and rapidly developing neighborhoods. Designed by Cosica Moos Architects, the project will add a major destination to the area with 26,000 square feet of retail space. A cafe, brewery, distillery, and beauty salon are some of the tenants already lined up. The development will also include significant residential space within three newly constructed buildings, all of which have already received permits.
