1,000 Residential Units on the Delaware River
"More than 1,000 new homes could be coming to a massive vacant parcel between the Delaware River and Philadelphia’s Port Richmond neighborhood," reports Jake Blumgart.
"The sprawling 1,100-unit project at 2001 Beach St. [pdf], just below Graffiti Pier, would include multifamily rental buildings at the western end of the site, followed by diverse array of single-family town homes as the development edges closer to the river’s edge," according to Blumgart.
Blumgart has been tracking other large new developments on the Delaware River, in a formerly industrial part of town.
The nearby Graffiti Pier, shut down this spring after an "uptick in illegal activity," will become a public park, as reported by Emily Rolen.
