A new project was presented at East Passyunk Crossing’s July zoning meeting last week, and it represents a different type of development for the neighborhood.
Located at 1840-44 S. Camac St. and running through to Iseminger ( the now-defunct Mancini’s Catering building), the plan calls for the demolition of the catering hall and one other associated building, and the erection of seven new single-family houses.
The houses would front on an interior walkway, and the two end properties would have one-car garages opening onto Iseminger, which should help alleviate some of the neighbors’ concerns about the impact these new residents will have on parking. The two houses with parking are planned to be four stories, while the rest will be three. The uppermost level of each house will be set back to allow for a walk-out roof deck.
