In September 2020, YIMBY reported that permits had been filed for a three-story two-family rowhouse at 142 West Huntingdon Street in West Kensington. Since then, construction has been completed on the development. The structure replaces a vacant lot on the south side of the block between North Howard and North Mascher streets. Designed by Plato Marinakos of Plato Studio, the building spans 3,267 square feet and features a roof deck. Permits list V2 Properties as the contractor.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a four-story, six-unit apartment building at 1525 North 7th Street in Ludlow, Lower North Philadelphia.

Designed by Plato Marinakos of Plato Studio, the building will span 10,162 square feet and feature a cellar and a roof deck. Prestige Design appears to be both the owner and contractor, with permits listing Prestige Design on Germantown as the owner of the site and Ofir Komerian of Prestige Design on Girard as the contractor.

A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed that construction is complete at the Prestige Pavilion, a five-story, six-unit residential building at 1929 North 7th Street in North Philadelphia East near Temple University. Designed by Plato Marinakos, the building will rise five stories tall. The building will span 9,156 square feet and feature a roof deck and full sprinkling. Permits list Ofer Komerian of Prestige Design on Girard as the contractor and a construction cost of $900,000.
Construction is well underway at a three-story single-family rowhouse at 1512 North 25th Street in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. The project replaces a vacant lot on the west side of the block between Jefferson Street and West Oxford Street. Designed by Plato Studio (led by Plato Marinakos, Jr.), the structure will span 3,943 square feet and feature a basement, a roof deck, and full sprinkling. Permits list V2 Properties as both the owner and the contractor.
Judging by recent permit activity, demolition appears imminent at 2331-33 East York Street in Olde Richmond, Kensington, where a three-story rowhouse and an adjacent fenced-in lot are slated to be replaced by a three-story mixed-use building. The building will hold commercial space in the basement and at the first floor (which will house a restaurant, according to both permits and the rendering) and four residential units on the floors above. The 7,400-square-foot structure will feature full sprinkling and a roof deck, which, judging by the building’s height and lack of nearby obstructions, will offer decent views of the skyline. Permits list Plato Marinakos as the design professional, PASP LLC as the contractor, and a construction cost of $500,000.
