Last October, YIMBY shared a series of renderings for a multi-building, 189-unit development proposed at 2204-14 East Allegheny Avenue in Port Richmond, Kensington. Designed by VBC Studio, the complex will span 146,032 square feet and include a six-story apartment building, 70 townhouses, 17,710 square feet of retail, and 87 parking spaces. Although construction permits have not yet issued, a zoning permit issued in March, which calls for splitting the site into two parcels, indicates that activity is still ongoing on the project. Recently YIMBY visited the site to check out its pre-development condition.
Last October, YIMBY shared that permits were issued for a four-story, 14-unit residential building at 2500 North Mascher Street in West Kensington. Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit has revealed that, more than half a year later, construction is well underway on the project, which replaces a vacant lot at the northwest corner of North Mascher and West Cumberland streets. Designed by KCA Design Associates, the structure rises from a 2,867-square-foot footprint and spans 14,337 square feet, which averages to just over 1,000 square feet per apartment. The development will feature a cellar, full sprinkling, and roof decks, which promise sweeping skyline vistas due to the building’s prominence. Permits list LNHA New Homes as the contractor and a construction cost of $1.5 million.
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has discovered that construction is nearing completion at a four-story mixed-use building at 2400 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown, Kensington. The structure is rising at the angled northern corner of the three-way intersection between Frankford Avenue, Trenton Avenue, and East York Street, where a traffic circle was recently constructed. Designed by CANNOdesign and developed by Khosla Properties, the structure will span 17,972 square feet and hold 2,459 square feet of retail space and 15 apartments. Features include full sprinkling, a green roof, and parking for five bicycles. Permits list Tester Construction Group as the contractor and a construction cost of $2.6 million.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a multi-family building located at 1219 West Butler Street in Hunting Park, North Philadelphia. Upon completion, the new building will rise three stories tall, with three apartments and a roof deck at the top. The building will yield a total of 3,480 square feet of space. Construction costs are listed at $450,000.
Although construction permits have been issued last February, construction has not yet started at the three-story single-family rowhouse proposed at 1905 East Harold Street in East Kensington, as Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit has confirmed. Designed by KCA Design Associates, the project, which is situated on the east side of the block between Jasper and Emerald streets, will span 1,872 square feet and will feature a roof deck and full sprinkling. Permits list Andrey Levchenko as the contractor and a construction cost of $200,000, of which $173,000 is allocated toward general construction and $9,000 apiece to mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work.
