612 McKean Street
In December 2019, a permit has been issued for the construction of a three-story detached residential building at 612 McKean Street in Wharton, South Philadelphia. Since that time, more than two years later, construction has not yet started at the site, as revealed by our recent site visit. The permits describe the structure as offering 4,351 square feet. Notably, the permit contradicts itself as the description describes the proposal as a single-family residence while the field below lists the structure type as two-family. Shanika Wilson is listed as the owner and Tobias Stokes as the contractor. The cost of construction work is specified at $100,000.
