Permits have been issued for the construction of a four-story, 18-unit residential structure at 1731 Washington Avenue in Graduate Hospital, South Philadelphia. The building will will also include 24 parking spaces, 20 of which are set to be mechanical, a retail space set to be occupied by a restaurant, and a roof deck that will offer sweeping views of the Philadelphia skyline. The development will hold 36,336 square feet of space and cost an estimated $3,633,600 to build.
Construction is moving along North Liberty Triangle at 1102-48 North 2nd Street, yet another residential development in progress in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. Developed by Streamline Development, the six-story structure will feature 84 residential units for the residential space as well as retail, a gym, and underground parking for future residents.
Construction is progressing rapidly at the seven-story building at 701 South Broad Street in Hawthorne, South Philadelphia. A total of 50 residential units will be situated on the floors above, as well as four “hotel rooms,” which will likely be short-term apartment rental units. The building will include a retail space on the ground floor. YIMBY first discussed the development last November, sharing the project’s rendering. Since then, significant progress has been observed at the site.
Construction is underway at Bloc24, a mixed-use building located at 613 South 24th Street in Graduate Hospital, South Philadelphia. The development will stand five stories tall and can be built by right due to the proposed supermarket at the ground floor. Eight residential units are proposed on the floors above, each set to be market-rate.
Renovation is underway at the 27-story Embassy Suites by Hilton Philadelphia Center City at 1776 Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Logan Square, Center City. Upon completion, the circular tower that stands at the corner of North 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway will be a residential development called The Terrace on 18th Street. The building was originally completed back in 1963 designed by Oskar Stonorov of Korman Co. as an apartment building. In the 1980s it was converted into Embassy Suites, and now Pearl Properties is transforming the building back to a 288-unit apartment structure. Exterior renderings are done by Gabe Lui Architectural Renderings and the interiors are designed by DAS Architecture.
