A multi-building development is poised to significantly expand the block-spanning Artist Village apartment complex at 700 South 17th Street in Graduate Hospital, South Philadelphia, adding 32 new apartments to boost its total residential unit count to 68. Designed by Colliers Engineering & Design and developed by the Regis Group, the project involves replacing existing fenced-in green space and parking lots at the property with a five-story, 20-unit apartment building and 12 four-story townhouses, complimenting the existing six-story, 17-unit and five-story, 19-unit buildings that currently stand at the site.
A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed that construction has not yet started at the five-story, 50-unit residential building at 139 West Chelten Avenue in Germantown, Northwest Philadelphia, though permits were issued last October. Designed by CANNOdesign, the development will be situated within a two- to three-block walking distance to two SEPTA Regional Rail stations, the Chelten Avenue Station to the southwest and the Germantown Station to the northeast. The ground-level retail space will contribute to the commercial corridor along which the building will be situated. The structure will span a 13,681-square-foot footprint and will feature 52,391 square feet of interior space, full sprinkling, and an unspecified number of parking spaces. Permits list Tester Construction Group as the contractor and a construction cost of $7.7 million.
