UPDATE: A ridiculous flier is being distributed to oppose this 22-home development, as well as a previously proposed 48-home project near 20th and Wharton. The meeting is Monday, April 28 at 6 p.m. at Gospel Temple Baptist Church, 1327 S. 19th St. An agenda for the meeting by South Philadelphia Homes Inc. is here.
What the hell are they talking about with 300 residents with pit bulls? Scare tactic, maybe?
A development of 22 homes could be coming to 20th and Wharton streets on the site of a vacant warehouse. The would-be development sits across little Woodstock Street from another proposal that would bring 48 additional homes within steps of Point Breeze Avenue, which we reported about in October.
Naked Philly reports that both plots of land are under contract by OCF Holdings, owned by developer Ori Feibush, but that each project is being completed by a different developer. JKR partners has designed the homes for both projects:
Each home would be 1,800 square feet, 3 bedrooms, a roof deck and a finished basement. Says Naked Philly:
While a drive-aisle would seem to make sense for a project like this, it would pretty much eliminate the first floors of the houses and result in impossibly shallow homes. Alternately, front-loaded garages could be an option, but the developers specifically chose to stay away from two long rows of garages in this location.
So, no parking for either project.
So, what do you think of those Mansard roofs?
