In August 2020, Philly YIMBY reported that a zoning permit has been filed for the construction of a three-story single-family rowhouse at 539 West Berks Street near Temple University in North Philadelphia East. More than a year later, the structure stands complete. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence was sold last December for $500,000. The structure replaces a vacant lot on the north side of the block between North 5th and North 6th streets and holds 3,416 square feet of interior space. Features include a basement and a roof deck, which offers largely unobstructed views of the surrounding area. Permits list V2 Properties Entity 6 LL as the owner, Plato Marinakos as the design professional, and V2 Properties Construction Management LLC as the contractor.
