Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit to the 27-unit residential project under construction at 2100 Hamilton Street revealed that cladding has reached the top of the 11-story structure, though progress has slowed down since our last site visit. Designed by Philadelphia based architects Cecil Baker + Partners and developed by Bock Development Group, the building stands in the Franklintown neighborhood in North Philadelphia near Logan Square in Center City to the south. Last year, the structure reached its full height of 115 feet and is on its way to becoming the latest luxury development in a neighborhood that rarely sees new construction.
A residential conversion has been approved at 1222-24 Annin Street in Passyunk Square, South Philadelphia. The project will turn an existing prewar industrial structure into a multi-family building. Upon completion, the development will hold three residential units.
Permits have been issued for a 54-unit multi-family development at 115 East Huntingdon Street in West Kensington. The development will consist of a complete renovation of an existing five-story prewar structure. The 46,811-square-foot project will cost an estimated $14.9 million to build.
Renderings have been revealed for Station Square, a multi-unit development located at 308-16 West Chelten Avenue in Germantown, Northwest Philadelphia. Designed by Coscia Moos, the structure will stand five stories tall, with 49 residential units. RM Development and Zatos Investments are the developers for the project.
A zoning permit has been issued for the demolition of a large commercial structure at 9801 Blue Grass Road by the Northeast Philadelphia Airport in Far Northeast Philadelphia. The single-story facility appears to have served as a distribution facility or a trucking depot until recently, though permits classify the structure as vacant. The filing lists a building footprint of 396,812 square feet, making the facility one of the largest structures to be slated for the wrecking ball in recent years.
