Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit found construction well underway at the six-story, 45-unit residential building at 1805 North Howard Street in Fishtown, Kensington. Located on a mid-block site between West Montgomery Avenue and West Berks Street, a short block west of the Berks Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line, the project will feature artist studios on the ground floor, as well as parking for 14 cars and 15 bicycles. The permits, issued in January 2020, list a project area of 36,802 square feet, Bottos Construction Inc. as the contractor, and a construction cost of $8 million.
Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit has revealed that little progress, if any, has been made over the past few months at the multi-building mixed-use complex planned at 918 North Delaware Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. Designed by L2Partridge and developed by Core Realty, the development, also known as 918-80 North Delaware Avenue, will consist of five seven-story buildings as well as a minor single-story one. The complex will hold a total of 418,480 square feet of space and offer 426 residential units.
Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed no signs of impending demolition nor construction at the site of a seven-story, 220-unit residential building proposed at 417-25 Callowhill Street in Northern Liberties. Designed by Bernardon, the building will be situated just to the north of Old City and will offer apartments ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments, 29,980 square feet of amenities, and an expansive roof deck. Parking for 71 vehicles will also be provided.
No construction progress has been made at the site of a three-story building proposed at 933 North American Street in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia, as our recent site visit has shown. In August of last year, one of YIMBY’s earliest articles revealed that permits have been filed for a new structure located just off the triple intersection of North American Street, West Laurel Street, and North Bodine Street, where a Colonial-style rowhouse currently stands.
The latest office building to be constructed in Center City since the Comcast Technology Center was completed in 2019 is the one currently rising at 2222 Market Street, located within the rapidly growing Center City West neighborhood. Designed by Gensler and developed by Parkway Commercial Properties, the building has recently topped out and now stands at its full height of 295 feet and 19 stories. The development will hold law office space, with the law firm Morgan, Lewis, Bockius LLP planning to occupy at least part of the structure. The tower is the second high-rise project to go up in the area in recent years, following the topping-out of the two Riverwalk buildings.
