A the end of December a proposal for a mix of apartments, townhouses and retail, with the addition of one very tall billboard, was presented for the Freda Meats factory in Pennsport.
A less controversial development is also being planned in the neighborhood at 116-30 Reed St., featuring 26 single-family homes.
The project from US Construction and JKRP Architects will be reviewed by the Civic Design Review next week. In the meantime, here’s a look at some renderings for the project being called Reed Estates.
Plans include parking for 51 vehicles and 30 bikes. All but one home would be expected to have a two car garage. The units would all be three bedroom, three-story homes.
With the addition of Southwark on Reed, and potentially this development and the nearby Freda factory plans, Pennsport is in a time of transformation. You can view the full Civic Design Review packet for this project here.
