Developer Presents Plans for 24-Unit Apartment in West Philly
During a meeting with the Spruce Hill Community Association zoning committee yesterday, developers behind a proposed 24-unit apartment building presented their plan, which is set to accommodate low-income residents, “particularly veterans” and replace the burned down building at 4536 Spruce, according to Mike Lyons at West Philly Local:
The Mission First Housing Group‘s building would include 24 one- and two-bedroom rental apartments aimed at people with a household income of $36,000 a year or less and is contingent on state funding. Mission First hopes to improve its chances for funding by going through the zoning process, which will require variances for building height, erecting a multi-family structure and not providing parking.
Lyons adds that the project would also offer both an indoor compactor and bike storage. Parking was not proposed.
