A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed that construction of foundations is well underway at a nine-unit townhouse complex at 316-20 South 11th Street in Washington Square West, Center City. Although construction permits have been filed in November, our recent site visit has revealed that construction work has not yet begun on the development. According to permits, all nine buildings will be fairly similar, if not altogether identical. Each will span a 1,241-square-foot footprint and offer 4,589 square feet of space, which would make for a regal interior in any part of the city, let alone such a centrally located one. Permits list OCF Construction as the contractor.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, four-unit apartment building at 17 West Girard Street in Fishtown. The development will replace a three-story rowhouse on the north side of the block between Frankford Avenue and Leopard Street. Designed by Gnome Architects, the building will feature ground floor commercial space, a cellar, and multiple roof decks. Permits list GRIT Construction as the contractor.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, five-unit condominium at 1100 Pine Street in Washington Square West, Center City. The development will replace a two-story mixed-use rowhouse on the southwest corner of the intersection of Pine and South 11th streets. Designed by Gnome Architects, the building will span 8,497 square feet and will feature ground floor commercial space, a cellar, and roof decks. Permits list Kiptom Ketchum as the contractor and a construction cost of $1.2 million.
As expected, a recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has discovered no signs of new construction at the site of 21M, a 350-foot-tall mixed-use tower proposed at 2100 Market Street in Center City West. Developed by the Brandywine Realty Trust, the project has been in the works for several years and has seen various iterations, with the latest one designed by Edry McHenry Architects. Since we last looked at the project for our most recent December countdown, no permits have been filed nor has any progress has been made at the site, where a parking lot continues to operate.
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has documented construction at a five-story, 59-unit mixed-use development proposed at 1148 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown.

The Wells Fargo Bank branch currently situated in the existing building will be relocated to the new structure. Designed by OOMBRA Architects, the development will include 20 parking spaces for commercial customers, elevator service for residents, 20 bicycle spaces, and a roof deck. Permits list Wells Fargo Bank as the owner and Reed St. Builders LLC, and a construction cost of $9.25 million.
