Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit has observed demolition progress at the site of a seven-story, 119-unit mixed-use building proposed at 619 North Broad Street in Poplar, Lower North Philadelphia. Designed by Brightcommon, the building will hold two commercial spaces at the ground floor, spanning 3,791 square feet of space, 90,882 square feet of residential space, and 34 parking spaces.
As we anticipated (since construction permits still had not been filed), Philly YHIMBY’s recent site visit has found no signs of development at Mural West, a 363-foot-tall mixed-use tower proposed at 523 North Broad Street in Poplar, Lower North Philadelphia. Designed by Atkin Olshin Schade Architects and developed by Precision Realty Group, the project will provide office, retail, and commercial/medical space, as well as more than 200 residential units. The project will also include public plaza next to the eponymous mural, which is painted on the adjacent Mural Lofts residential building, as well as amenities such as a roof deck with potential restaurant space. If built, the tower will dramatically boost the skyline of Lower North Philadelphia and will stand as one of the tallest buildings north of Center City.
Although permits for the building have been filed some time ago, Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit discovered no notable construction progress, aside from ground excavation, at 1200 Ridge Avenue, a 46-unit development proposed in Poplar, North Philadelphia.

The basement will be allocated to amenities such as parking space for 13 cars and 24 bicycles. A roof deck will be located atop the sixth floor at the summit of the structure, and will provide panoramic views of the skyline. Permits list HC Pody Company and a construction cost of $6 million.
