Rendering for proposed single-family homes for former Goldstein’s location

Earlier this week we told you about zoning notices posted on the former location of Goldstein’s at 807-809 S. 6th St.


The proposal for the development of this long-standing building includes the construction of three single-family homes in replacement of the current building, which includes a ground-floor retail space. We now have a look at a rendering of this proposed development.

Chris Dardaris, the developer for the project, provided this image. The proposal includes the reallocation of lot lines to create three four-story homes from this corner property that is currently considered as two lots. Each lot is approximately 2,212 sq. ft. This proposal also includes a roof deck above the fourth floor of the building.


The current appearance of the building.

What do you think of these plans? Should single-family residential development replace the current mix of residential and commercial?

    I am very concerned that these houses will only exist in two dimensions.

    I guess gone are the days that anything is built with some character. These are ugly. Look like boxes. and no parking?

      like practically every other property in the vicinity

      These are actually some of the nicer renderings I’ve seen for new construction housing. Literally every house in philadelphia looks like a box. Maybe a box with a bay window here and there.

        As opposed to the ones that look like circles.

      I agree with Alex. What a nice rendering! We have a house few doors away and although I have mixed feelings about the residential only project, the rendering is very beautiful and inspiring!

    I love this design! It’s definitely better than most new construction in the city.

    Aesthetically speaking, I think the area above the Goldstein’s sign should have windows of some sort, this would be more visually appealing. Perhaps the sign should be above the new windows??

    In addition to my previous comment, the whole upper fa├žade is unappealing, too much brick, prison-like.

    they forgot the 6 LOVELY utility meters and yards of cable wire that will also grace the front of these properties

    Sick of decks adding another story. They don’t fit into existing environment

    Looks great. Glad they didn’t fall victim to the ‘parking’ lobby. Nothing worse than a parking garage marring these facades.
