A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has discovered notable construction visit at Broad Street Flats, a seven-story mixed-use development rising at 701 South Broad Street in Hawthorne, South Philadelphia, since our last visit in April. Furthermore, a recent zoning submission indicates that the project’s name has been updated to Ovation, though the Broad Street Flats moniker also appears retained, at least for the time being. Designed by PZS Architects, the building will span 50,462 square feet (or 49,950 according to zoning blueprints) and feature commercial space and 50 residential units. Permits list Ferraro Construction Group as the contractor and a construction cost of $8 million.
Earlier this month, Philly YIMBY shared the news regarding plans for a 12-story, 170-unit mixed-use high-rise development proposed at 4746-48 Spruce Street in Garden Court (alternately Walnut Hill), West Philadelphia, going before the Civic Design Review. Today we venture beyond the brief overview we presented with the earlier news break to share an extensive package of plans and diagrams that were presented within the CDR submission. Designed by PZS Architects, the project will allocate 149,590 square feet for apartments, 5,700 square feet of residential amenities, around 29,000 square feet of indoor commercial space (plus a 1,500-square-foot commercial tenant terrace) and parking for around 28 cars and 76 bicycles. Although demolition permits have been issued in May, no comprehensive construction permits have yet been issued; however, the project may proceed as of right as it conforms with the zoning code and requires no variances, and has already received a preliminary review and approval.
