In 2020, YIMBY had reported that permits were filed for the demolition of a vacant three-story rowhouse at 4136 Lancaster Avenue in Haverford North, West Philadelphia. The property is located on the southwest side of the block between North 41st and Aspen streets. In the two years that have passed since, the dilapidated structure has still not been demolished, as YIMBY has seen in a recent site visit. Permits list Gama Wrecking Inc. as the contractor and specify a cost of work of $27,000.
Renderings have been revealed for 21st And Ludlow, a multi-family high-rise planned in Center City West. Designed by Eddy Mchenry Architecture and developed by the Parkway Corporation, the tower will rise 21 stories and 377 feet tall, with 304 residential units (31 of which will be designated as affordable housing), ground floor retail space, and 109 parking spaces located underneath the tower.
A pair of tower cranes have been assembled at the site of Broad and Washington, a massive 15-story, 1,111-unit development under construction at 1001 South Broad Street in Hawthorne, South Philadelphia. Designed by the BKV Group, the complex will span an entire city block at the northeast corner of the intersection of Broad Street and Washington Avenue. The 1,516,218-square-foot complex will cost nearly $306 million to construct.
Earlier this month YIMBY shared a recent Civic Design Review submission for Venice Island, a multi-building mixed-use development proposed at 4436-44 Main Street on the Schuylkill River waterfront in Manayunk, Northwest Philadelphia. The complex will straddle both sides of the Manayunk Canal, with buildings on Venice Island and on the mainland connected via a skywalk. Designed by JKRP Architects, the complex will span 144,082 square feet, which will include 1,000 square feet of retail space and 213 apartments. The development will also include 106 covered parking spaces and storage for 151 bicycles. Today we take a detailed look at the development via additional plans, diagrams, and renderings.
A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has confirmed that renovation work has still not started at 1222-24 Annin Street in Passyunk Square, South Philadelphia. The development, situated on the south side of the Annin Street cul-de-sac just to the west of South 12th Street, will transform an existing prewar structure into a three-unit multi-family building. Permits list Philadelphia Motoring Club LLC as the owner.
