Facade Rises at The Bordeaux in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia

In April of last year, YIMBY reported foundation work is underway at The Bordeaux, a five-story mixed-use building at 2600 West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. Since that time, construction has made significant progress. Our recent site visit has revealed that the structure has been topped out and a red brick facade is steadily climbing up the structure’s exterior. Designed by Ambit Architecture and developed by the Argo Property Group, with Tester Construction Group as the contractor, the building rises at the southwest corner of Girard Avenue and North 26th Street and will span 17,365 square feet, which will include a 3,500-square-foot ground-level retail space and 16 residential units.

Construction Imminent at 160-Unit Complex at 2360 West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia

Last October, Philly YIMBY reported that permits were issued for a five-story, 54-unit apartment building that is a part of a 160-unit residential complex proposed at 2630 West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. Nearly five months later, our recent site visit has revealed that no construction has yet taken place. However, a portion of the site has been cleared, and construction machinery indicates that excavation may start in the near future. Our prediction is further supported by the fact that permits have also been issued for the remaining structures planned at the site at the end of last year. Designed by ISA and developed by ADCO (American Development Company) and Callahan Ward (which will also act as the contractor), the development, located under the full address of 2630-38 West Girard Avenue, will consist of the aforementioned apartment building next to two rows of quadruplex units, and will feature 9,300 square feet of ground-level retail along Girard Avenue.
