Plans to demolish the vacant warehouse at 20th and Wharton were presented last year, with the intention to build 22 homes in the warehouse’s place.
Updated plans and renderings for this project are now here, with some changes being made, including the addition of parking to the project.
The project includes 22 homes, which according to last year’s plans, will be 1,800 sq. ft. and have 3 bedrooms, a roof deck and a finished basement. New renderings show that the roof decks will also have green roofs.
Since last year, some changes have been made to the plans. One of those changes being to the plans for parking. When first presented, a major opposition was regarding the development’s decision to not have parking. Because of this, in the updated plans there will be 1:1 parking allocated to the units.
More from Naked Philly:
This will mean a drive-aisle off of Wharton Street, but there’s already a curb-cut so it won’t impact the current parking environment. In addition, the mansards are gone but there’s some new architectural variety between the units. Finally, per the request of some people in the community, the first floor space will remain active to maintain eyes on the street.
