Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed no signs of new activity at 310-30 West Girard Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia, where construction is anticipated for a seven-story mixed-use building. Although no construction permits have yet been filed at the 30,102-square-foot lot, which has sat vacant for around three years as of now, a proposal surfaced earlier this summer. Designed by T + Associates Architects, the development will feature 189 residential units, 10,330 square feet of commercial space, an underground garage with 65 spaces, and parking for 68 bicycles.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, six-unit apartment building at 147-49 North Gross Street in Haddington, West Philadelphia. The structure will replace a vacant lot located on the east side of the block between Arch and Race streets, which faces the Haddington Woods urban forest on the opposite side of the street. Permits call for a ground footprint spanning 3,222 square feet, interior floor space measuring 5,450 square feet (which allocates around 900 square feet per typical unit), and features that include full sprinkling, a basement, and roof decks. SNB Investment Group is the listed owner, with Anthony Maso as the design professional and ATG Construction LLC as the contractor. Construction costs are listed at $600,000.
The steel structure has topped out at One uCity Square at 3401 Market Street, located in the heart of the uCity Square mega-project in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed by ZGF Architects and developed by Ventas Inc., the building, which now rises to its final height of 250 feet and 13 stories, is notable for its Jenga-like massing at its southeast corner.
Construction is now fully complete at a two-building rental complex situated at 909 Corinthian Avenue in Fairmount (alternately Francisville), North Philadelphia. Developed by MM Partners, the project consists of The Corinthian, a renovated five-story, 110-year-old building, and la Cour, a newly-constructed, three-story, 14-unit building next door. Designed by Marshall Sabitini and built by Tester Construction, la Cour now appears fully complete, while The Corinthian sports a new logo emblazoned across its facade.
Although permits for a multi-family building were issued nearly a year ago, in December 2020, construction has yet to begin at a multi-family building planned at 408-10 North Front Street in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed no construction activity at the location, although it also offered a glimpse at the rapidly growing development in the immediate vicinity. Permits for the site list 1833 Realty LLC as the owner.
