A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY revealed that construction nears completion at a four-story mixed-use building at 2243 North Broad Street, a block to the north of the Temple University campus in North Philadelphia. Designed by Stuart G. Rosenberg Architects (SgRA), the structure spans 10,297 square feet and holds commercial space on the ground floor and seven residential units that range from studios to two-bedrooms. Features include full sprinkling, space for 15 bicycles, in-unit washer/dryers, and balconies in many of the units. Permits list Ascent Design and Builder LLC as the designer and a construction cost of $700,000.
A slender, 49-unit apartment building is set to rise at 1208 Chestnut Street in Midtown Village, Center City. However, although demolition permits have been issued for the dilapidated three-story structure currently occupying the property, YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that no demo work has yet taken place. Designed by SgRA and developed by Michael Alhadad, the building will span a narrow, through-block lot on the block between South 12th and South 13th streets, stretching north-south from Chestnut Street to Sansom Street. The building will span 51,436 square feet and will feature a basement, ground-floor commercial space, full sprinkling, and a roof deck. Permits list Christian A. Sanchez as the contractor and a construction cost of $5.5 million.
