Renovation Underway at 2501 Oakford Street in Grays Ferry, South Philadelphia
Renovation work has made significant progress at the renovation of a former clothing factory and warehouse at 2501 Oakford Street in Grays Ferry, South Philadelphia. Designed by Stanev Potts Architects, the project adds a fifth floor to the hulking, dilapidated four-story structure and converts the interior into 54 residences and artist studios. The 8,397-square foot addition will boost the 52,420-square-foot structure to a total of 60,817 million, at a cost of $8.5 million in construction work. Permits list 25th and Oakford LLC as the owner and Reed Street Builders LLC as the contractor. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit has revealed that significant progress has been made on the renovation, and the structure appears on track toward completion some time this or next year.
