Two zoning permits have been filed for construction of a pair of three-story, single-family residences on two adjoining lots at 2147 and 2149 Cross Street in the Point Breeze neighborhood in South Philadelphia. The pair would replace a fenced-in garden at 2174 and a vacant lot at 2149, wedge-shaped due to its location at the confluence of Cross Street, South 22nd Street, and the diagonal Point Breeze Avenue. LK Builders LLC is listed as the owner for both properties.
Permits have been filed at 2013 Brown Street in the Fairmount neighborhood in North Philadelphia. The permit calls for a three-story rear addition for the existing three-story, pre-war row home at the site. The addition will include a roof deck that will open onto sweeping views of the city. The property is owned by Nathaniel Lewis and is located one lot away from the corner of Brown Street and North Capital Street.
Jefferson Health has already made a great impact on the Market East neighborhood in Center City, yet the campus keeps expanding. In December 2017, the hospital has announced a major lease at 1101 Market Street, long known as the Aramark Tower. The expansion continues as Jefferson is planning a 400-foot Jefferson Health Care Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street with 750,000 square feet of medical office space, as well as a 329-foot-tall proposal next door at 1153 Chestnut Street, slated to contain 250,000 square feet of residential space. The two towers, collectively known as East Market Phase 3, will replace a block-spanning, mid-rise commercial and garage structure, which has been recently demolished. BLT Architects and Ennead Architects are listed as project designers.
