Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit has noted that construction work has still not begun at a single-family residence at 1442 North Hollywood Street in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. More than a year later, YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that construction has not yet started at the currently vacant site. Designed by KCA Design Associates, the development will consist of a three-story rowhouse that will span 2,312 square feet and feature full sprinkling, a cellar, and a roof deck, which promises to offer open skyline views due to the building’s future prominence above neighboring structures. Permits list B&I Development LLC. as the owner and BI Direct LLC as the contractor.

Permits list Northeast Builders LLC as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $400,000.
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has noted that demolition work has been completed at a vacant two-story prewar rowhouse at 1535 North 27th Street in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia.

Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit has confirmed that construction is complete at a mixed-use development at 2301 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown. Designed by Ian Smith Design Group, the project adds a three-story rear addition to a three-story prewar building and two smaller adjacent structures at the eastern corner of Frankford Avenue and East Dauphin Street. The finished structure will feature ground-floor commercial space and six residential units, as well as a cellar. Permits list Black Oak Builders as the contractor and a construction cost of $312,000.
Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit has noted that construction has not yet started for a single-family dwelling proposed at 2846 Belgrade Street in Port Richmond, Kensington, although permits have been issued in October 2020. The development was originally planned as an expansion of the existing structure, which is situated on the northwest side of the block between East Somerset and East Auburn streets. It appears that the latest plans for the through-block lot call for an unspecified “change of use” for the existing rowhouse at Belgrade Street and construction of a new single-family building on the Miller Street side, which, in a blueprint produced by Agim Belulaj, is shown as a four-story structure designed in a traditionally inspired manner.
