Permits have been issued for a 46-unit multi-family renovation of an existing building located at 1952-58 North Front Street in Fishtown, Kensington. Designed by CANNOdesign, the development’s vertical addition will bring its height to five floors. Commercial space will be included on the ground floor and a green roof will be situated at the top. In total, the building will hold 58,134 square feet of space. Construction costs are estimated at $8.9 million.
Cladding installation is wrapping up at the Drexel College of Nursing and Health Professions at 3601 Filbert Street in University City, West Philadelphia, as glass panels have reached the top of the steel structure. Developed by Wexford Science & Technology LLC and designed by Ballinger, the building is one of the first structures under construction within the uCity Square complex. Alternately known as the Wexford Drexel Academic Tower, the high-rise stands 185 feet and 12 stories tall.
Construction is rapidly approaching completion at The Block At SoNo, a 49-unit mixed-use rental development at 456 North 5th Street in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. Designed by ISA Architects and developed by Alliance HP and Callahan Ward, the project is situated half a block south of Spring Garden Street in Southern Northern Liberties (aka SoNo, hence the building name). The four-story building will feature three commercial spaces on the ground floor, 40 apartments, nine live-work units, a shared lounge, and both shared and private roof decks. A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY revealed that the structure is very close to completion, with exterior work almost entirely finished and finishing touches in progress around the development.
Completion rapidly approaches at 1801 Fairmount, a five-story, ten-unit mixed-use development at 1801 Fairmount Avenue in Fairmount, North Philadelphia. Also known as 1801-03 Fairmount Avenue, the structure stands at the northwest corner of Fairmount Avenue and North 18th Street, near the southern edge of Francisville, and features ground-level retail and ten luxury condominiums. Philadelphia YIMBY recently visited the site of the nearly finished structure.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a 150-unit mixed-use building at 2400-12 East Huntingdon Street (also known as 2400 East Huntingdon Street) in Olde Richmond, Kensington. Designed by KCA Design Associates, the building will rise seven stories tall, a height that was permitted via a zoning bonus for the inclusion of a fresh food market on the ground floor. An industrial-commercial space will also be located in the ground floor. Apartments will be situated on floors two through seven. In total, the structure will hold 122,500 square feet of space. An underground garage will hold 45 parking spaces, with three to be ADA compliant, and three more reserved for electric vehicles. The development will also include 50 bicycle spaces. Construction costs are estimated at $18 million.
