Eight-Unit Renovation Nearly Complete at 2653-61 Salmon Street in Olde Richmond, Kensington
An eight-unit renovation project is nearing completion at 2653-61 Salmon Street in Olde Richmond, Kensington. The project is situated on a through-block lot on the block between East Huntingdon Street and East Lehigh Street, across from the elevated Interstate 95. Designed by Kore Design Architecture, the project converts a single-story, 21-foot-tall warehouse into a two-story, eight-unit apartment building by inserting a new floor plate, interior partitions, and stair banks. Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that construction is nearing completion, with new door and window apertures have been cut into the largely windowless exterior and private roof decks added to the pinnacle. Permits list Salmon Street Holdings LLC as the owner, Metropolitan Contracting as the contractor, and a construction cost of $900,000.
