At the end of 2020, YIMBY reported that permits have been filed for the construction of a single-family residential structure at 3644 Wharton Street in the Forgotten Bottom section of Grays Ferry in South Philadelphia. The structure will replace a vacant lot on the south side of the block between South 36th Street and Schuylkill Avenue. Designed by Joseph S. Serratore & Company Architects (JOs. Serratore & Co. Architect Inc. aka JAS), the building will rise three stories and hold 2,285 square feet of interior space. Features will include full sprinkling, a basement, and a roof deck, which, due to the building’s prominence over adjacent structures, will offer dramatic vistas of the nearby Center City and University City skylines. Permits list South Campus LLC as the owner and Cormac McAller as the contractor.
