Permits have been issued for the renovation of a former industrial building located at 2501 Oakford Street in Grays Ferry, South Philadelphia. The former factory is set to receive an extra floor on top of the current four-story structure and to become home to 54 apartments as well as commercial space. Though not mentioned in the latest permit, a similar permit dating to May 2018 also called for artist studios and a roof deck, which would offer sweeping views since the tall-ceiled floors make the structure stand prominently above the low-rise surroundings. The owner is listed as 25th and Oakford LLC, with Reed St builders LLC listed as the contractor.

Conshohocken, a quaint town located roughly 11 miles away from Center City, sits within Montgomery county on the left bank of the Schuylkill River. The town has recently seen a large amount of new development, having grown into a strong suburban (in the better sense of the word) force that has helped the Philadelphia metro area blossom. Its latest new development, the 304-unit residential complex at 51 Washington Street, is now under construction.
