Last year in May, permits had been issued for a commercial renovation and vertical expansion for a three-story prewar building at 725-29 South Broad Street in Hawthorne, South Philadelphia. Since that time, however, no construction progress has been made on the structure, as Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit has shown. Designed by CANNOdesign, the structure, located on the east side of South Broad Street on the block between Bainbridge and Fitzwater streets, will rise five stories. Permits list Santech Construction Corp. as the contractor and a construction cost of $3.8 million.
Santech Construction Corp.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, three-unit multi-family building at 2239 Germantown Avenue in North Philadelphia East. The building will rise from a vacant site located on the northeast side of the block between West Susquehanna Avenue and West Dauphin Avenue. The building will rise from a 1,209-square-foot footprint and will feature a commercial space on the ground floor. The structure will contain 3,627 square feet of interior space and will feature a roof deck, which will offer open skyline views due to the building’s prominently sited location.
