A 14-house development has been approved for the site of a vacant one-story warehouse in an empty corner of Point Breeze just below Washington Avenue.
The warehouse on the south side of the 2300 block of Alter Street would be torn down to make way for a familiar formula of three-story homes with roof decks, bay windows and parking, according to the zoning documents. We weren’t able to get our hands on renderings from architect Harman Deutsch this time.
Across the street another proposal would bring a huge storage facility to the vacant lot at 2300 Washington Ave., which Naked Philly called “a step in the wrong direction.”
Another development on the 2400 block of Ellsworth could combine with this project to inject a helluva lot of people into this area. That’s the 43-apartment project proposed by Magdim Inc. to renovate that building you can see at the end of Alter Street in this picture:
Could create a whole new population center over here. Give some business to the new location of Springfield Beer, Kermit’s Bake Shoppe and the cafe in NextFab studios, too.
