In April of last year, YIMBY reported foundation work is underway at The Bordeaux, a five-story mixed-use building at 2600 West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. Since that time, construction has made significant progress. Our recent site visit has revealed that the structure has been topped out and a red brick facade is steadily climbing up the structure’s exterior. Designed by Ambit Architecture and developed by the Argo Property Group, with Tester Construction Group as the contractor, the building rises at the southwest corner of Girard Avenue and North 26th Street and will span 17,365 square feet, which will include a 3,500-square-foot ground-level retail space and 16 residential units. Permits list a construction cost of $2.75 million.

A year ago, the start of August marked the launch of Philadelphia YIMBY. We were excited to extend New York YIMBY’s years-long legacy of covering architecture, construction, and development to the City of Brotherly Love. Since that time, our staff has shared over 1,000 articles, covering a wide variety of topics that were cataloged into more than 1,800 categories. In celebration of Philly YIMBY’s first anniversary, we look at our most frequently tagged categories in a month-long series of articles that will run as a countdown that starts with the 31th most-popular category and will run until it hits number one. Today we begin our countdown by looking at Rittenhouse Square and Brewerytown, the two categories tied for the 31st place.
