The Philadelphia Real Estate Blog got us a first look last week at the new split-levels replacing the Pain Center at 12th and Lombard, a rather dated 1970s-era structure.

How it looks today. Courtesy Philaphilia.

Designed by ubiquitous local architects Harman Deutsch, these structures will come with a 2-car rear garage with decks on top, as well as the firm’s idiosyncratic design. We’ll have more details as and we learn about them!

Big Bella Vista Rowhomes at Itty-Bitty Corner

Hidden away at the corner of Marshall and Clymer, just south of the 600 block of Fitzwater, we discovered two large new Bella Vista rowhomes going up.

 

JKR Partners is the listed architect of these handsome brick bad boys feature off-street parking–kind of important on a street too narrow to have any–and a mansard-inspired roof.

More details, including whether or not they were sold, as soon as we can get them!

Redevelopment in Bella Vista: Demolition, New Houses

This old Modernist commercial structure at the corner of Catherine and Warnock–1020 Catherine Street–is slated to come down and be replaced by four new Bella Vista houses, according to the demolition permit. Each of these houses would come complete with pilot house, roof deck, and its own garage. Harman Deutsch is the listed architect, which gives a good idea what these homes will eventually look like.

This is how the property looked like walking by yesterday. We’ll keep you updated with more information as and when wrecking balls arrive on the site.

Bella Vista Renovation Next to Nebinger

Beautiful Sunny Bella Vista

A renovated rowhome is coming in Bella Vista at 633 Carpenter Street, next door to the Nebinger School, a half-block away from the Santore Branch of the Free Library, and a block away from Washington Avenue. Handled by De Simone Contracting, this renovation is a gut job of the original (ca. 1840s) structure, involving an entirely new façade and a vastly improved third story.

We’ll keep you informed as we get more information on this wonderful little project!

New Townhomes Coming to East Passyunk

i goldberg warehouse east passyunk

Like whoa.

That big old building used to be the I. Goldberg company warehouse. At 13th and Chestnut, I. Goldberg is our fair city’s premier military surplus store. Back in their heydey they owned a warehouse at the corner of 12th and Latona Streets in the heart of East Passyunk.

Yes.

And now it’s a pile of dirt.

According to our insider sources, the site was purchased for $825,000 in late 2011 and the new owner’s intent is for 12 to 13 townhomes selling in the range of $425,000 each. L&I’s mum on the matter, as are the locals at the watering hole, but QB3 is the listed architect. Rest assured, we will keep you updated with what we can find out when we find out about it.

Yikes.

Now, if only a certain building down the street could see some love…
