A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed that demolition has been complete and construction has not yet started at the single-family structure proposed at 1401 North Marston Street in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. The structure is located on the west side of the block between Master Street and Jefferson Street. The building will feature a roof deck and will not exceed 38 feet in height to its principal structure. Thomas Hollinger is the listed owner.

The rest of the structure has been stripped of decoration and plastered with stucco years ago, and has sat abandoned for more than a decade. A demolition permit was filed for the existing building in March 2020.
