Permits have been issued for the construction of a four-story, six-unit residential building at 1108-12 Sigel Street in Wharton, South Philadelphia. The development will replace a single-story, warehouse-style commercial structure on the south end of the block located between South 11th and South Sartain streets. Project amenities include parking for four cars and 11 bicycles, as well as a roof deck that promises to offer dramatic skyline views thanks to the building’s prominent height relative to the surrounding neighborhood. Permits list Diantonio & Bongiovanni B. as the owners, Timothy Kerner as the design professional, and Diantonio & Bongiovanni LLC as the contractor, suggesting that the structure will be constructed by the owner. Construction costs are specified at $600,000.

Partial permits have been issued for the Fishtown Power Plant Redevelopment, a mega-project planned at 1325 Beach Street in Fishtown on the Delaware River waterfront. The development includes a renovation of the Delaware Generating Station, a closed and abandoned power plant where construction work is already in progress, and a two-study addition atop the structure, for a combined 284 residential units inside. The permits were issued specifically for the addition, as renovations have already been underway for some time.
