Last month, Philadelphia YIMBY reported that permits have been issued for renovation and an addition at 141-43 North 4th Street in Old City. Designed by Designblendz, the development will rise from a through-block site that stretches from North 4th to North Orianna streets and will involve renovation of a historic four-story, 18,160-square-foot building on 4th Street and the construction of a six-story, 19,406-square-foot annex at Orianna Street. In total, the project will span 37,566 square feet and feature 36 residential units as well 13 off-site accessory parking spaces and ten bicycle spaces. Permits list John G. Traver Co. Inc. as the owner, Pioneer Construction and Development Corporation as the contractor, and a construction cost of $2.86 million.
Foundation work is making rapid progress at Carrie’s Court, a development underway at 2616 South 18th Street in Girard Estates, South Philadelphia. Designed by Designblendz, the project consists of 22 three-story single-family homes, with two rows arranged on opposite sides of a central drive aisle.
A recent site visit has revealed that construction is nearly wrapped up at The Vine, a 24-unit condominium project underway at 1723 Francis Street in Francisville (alternately Fairmount), Lower North Philadelphia. Designed by Gnome Architects, developed by the Stamm Development Group, and constructed by PB+DC (Point Builders and Design Concepts), the project consists of a partial demolition and renovation of a three-story prewar building and the construction of a new four-story extension. The building will span 20,971 square feet of floor space and feature 18 parking spaces in a ground-level garage. A shared roof deck will offer greenery, gathering and lounge space, and views of the skylines of Center City, University City, and Temple University. Construction costs are specified at $1.26 million.
A construction boom is underway in the Washington Square West neighborhood of Center City, with many residential projects in progress. Located near the Jefferson Health campus, a new residential high-rise at 210 South 12th Street (previously reported to be addressed at 204 South 12th Street) appears to be underway again. Designed by BLT Architects and developed by Midwood Investments and Development, the rental tower will rise 366 feet tall and 32 stories high and offer 378 units, bringing a significant amount of new residential stock to the neighborhood.
A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed that construction nears completion at LVL North, a seven-story, 410-unit mixed-use development at 510 North Broad Street in Spring Garden, Lower North Philadelphia. Designed by JKRP Architects and developed by the Alterra Property Group, the development will include a GIANT supermarket that will span roughly one-third of the 378,000-square-foot structure.
