Construction Imminent at 160-Unit Complex at 2360 West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia

Last October, Philly YIMBY reported that permits were issued for a five-story, 54-unit apartment building that is a part of a 160-unit residential complex proposed at 2630 West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. Nearly five months later, our recent site visit has revealed that no construction has yet taken place. However, a portion of the site has been cleared, and construction machinery indicates that excavation may start in the near future. Our prediction is further supported by the fact that permits have also been issued for the remaining structures planned at the site at the end of last year. Designed by ISA and developed by ADCO (American Development Company) and Callahan Ward (which will also act as the contractor), the development, located under the full address of 2630-38 West Girard Avenue, will consist of the aforementioned apartment building next to two rows of quadruplex units, and will feature 9,300 square feet of ground-level retail along Girard Avenue.

Philly YIMBY Launches Its First Anniversary Countdown by Looking at Rittenhouse Square and Brewerytown

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.
