Construction Still Pending at 1326 Palethorp Street in Olde Kensington

Although a zoning permit was issued in November 2020, a recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has revealed that construction has not yet started at a single-family dwelling proposed at 1326 Palethorp Street in Olde Kensington. The development is slated to replace a vacant lot on the west side of the block between West Thompson and Master streets, and will feature a roof deck. Detailed information on the project remains scarce, although permits list CANNOdesign as the contractor (which is likely a confusing word choice, as CANNOdesign is an architecture firm and the listing likely refers to it as an architectural contractor).
