A 23-townhouse complex has been proposed at 209-211 Delmar Street in Manayunk, Northwest Philadelphia. Designed by Alma Architecture, the development combines the city’s traditional rowhouses with a courtyard typology as a solution for the deep-set, sloped site, as illustrated in the firm’s recent Civic Design Review submission. The design is a novel adaptation to a challenging site in Northwest Philadelphia’s hilly terrain, which contrasts with the generally flat city.
Permits have been filed for the construction of a four-story, mixed use structure at 5312-18 Ridge Avenue in the Manayunk neighborhood in Northwest Philadelphia. The building will span a 15,753-square-foot footprint, hold 33,544 square feet of floor area, and contain 36 residential units. The ground floor will feature two commercial spaces, one of which will be occupied by a fresh food market. The address currently houses a one floor industrial building, which will need to be demolished in order for construction to move forward on the project. Klein & Company Plumbing INC will be the contractor for the project. Construction costs are estimated at $5 million.
Construction is well in progress at The Locks, located at 4590 Riverside Way at the Venice Island waterfront in Manayunk. The project includes 63 townhomes with square footage ranging from 2,100 to 3,500 feet. The project, designed by Varenhorst, is replacing what was once an overgrown vacant lot.
