A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has discovered that construction work has not yet started at a four-story, ten-unit development planned at 6552 Germantown Avenue in Mount Airy, Northwest Philadelphia, although permits had been issued in August 2020. The project will rise on a mid-block site on the west side of the block between Good and West Hotter streets. Designed by Designblendz, the structure will span 17,062 square feet and will feature ground floor commercial space and a roof deck. Permits list Designblendz Home Solutions as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $1.8 million.
6552 Germantown Avenue
A permit has been issued for the construction of a four-story structure at 6552 Germantown Avenue in Mount Airy. The building will consist of 10 residential units. It will have easy access to the Chestnut Hill West regional rail line and fronts the busy and frequent 23 bus route. The current site houses a once-attractive row of three homes with vacant retail spaces on the first floor. Those structures are now crumbling and are are possibly no longer salvageable.
