Last week, a zoning permit has been filed for the complete demolition of all structures on the lot at 901 Leland Street in Francisville, North Philadelphia. A single-story, pre-war warehouse currently spans the lot. Curiously, the permit seems to be a departure from another recent filing issued in late July, which called for the erection of a five-story addition to the existing one-story structure. 2036 Fairmount Ave LLC is the listed owner.
Demolition permits have been filed for a two-story rowhouse at 4019 Haverford Avenue in the Haverford North neighborhood of West Philadelphia. The property, which sits located close to the corner of Haverford Avenue and North Preston Street, is owned by 4019 Haverford Avenue LLC.
The Durst Organization is proposing to replace a large parking lot at the Delaware River waterfront with a 290-foot, 24-story residential building at 300 North Christopher Columbus Boulevard in Center City. Handel Architects have crafted the structure as a wide, jagged slab facing its broad side toward the river. The development will rise three-quarters as high as the nearby, 385-foot-tall Benjamin Franklin Bridge and will bring much-needed activity to the long-neglected stretch of the waterfront.
A permit has been issued for the erection of a three-story, five-unit residential structure at 4107 West Girard Avenue in the neighborhood of Parkside, located in West Philadelphia. The address is currently home to a vacant lot between 41st Street and Leigh Avenue.
