A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has noted that construction is well underway at a seven-story, 61-unit mixed-use development at 36-42 South 2nd Street (also known as 36-38 South 2nd Street) in Old City. The project replaces a parking lot on the west side of the block between Market and Chestnut streets. Designed by CANNOdesign, the building will span 51,623 square feet and will feature ground-level retail, a cellar, and a shared roof deck. Permits list the Tester Construction Group as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $10.5 million.
