YIMBY Shares Additional Views of Project Site at 1101-33 South 9th Street in the Italian Market in South Philadelphia

At the end of October, YIMBY shared photos of a dormant construction site slated for a seven-story, 157-unit mixed-use building at 1101-33 South 9th Street in the Italian Market, South Philadelphia. Today we deliver an additional view of the site, which continues to sit fallow and form an unfortunate gap in the bustling, pedestrian-friendly streetscape of the Market, in a nod to New York YIMBY‘s ongoing Turkey Week, which tracks stalled developments. The building will rise from a large parcel located at the southeast corner of 9th Street and Washington Avenue. Designed by BLT Architects, the structure will span 204,351 square feet and will feature 15,192 square feet of commercial space and parking. Permits list HC Pody Company as the contractor and indicate a construction cost of $52 million.
