On July 27th the builder broke ground, literally, for the new building adjacent to 4834 Penn Street. The old building was completely redone and opened earlier this year as 6 apartment. The new section will take up the entire rear yard out to Leiper St. and will contain multiple rental units.
With the work going on at 4732-34 Griscom to rehab the old four story hotel into 8 rental units, this area of Frankford is seeing some interesting movement.
Today the former Mater Dolorosa and St. Joachim School buildings as well as the St. Joachim convent go to auction. Those are huge opportunities for development. We’ll be there to see who bids on what.
