At Last! 4224 Baltimore Avenue Project to Be Reviewed by the City
An update for those who’ve been following the 4224 Baltimore Avenue saga: The mixed-use project has finally reached city review level! After being in limbo for what felt like ages, West Philly Local now reports three April hearings have been scheduled “at the City government offices at 1515 Arch Streets.” The public is encouraged to attend, the Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting being perhaps the most crucial of the three. Dates and times below.
In addition to getting support from the Friends of Clark Park neighborhood group (they really liked the plan), WPL says the proposed 132-unit structure has been approved by the Spruce Hill Community Association and the University City Historical Society. We thought you might want to see the latest rendering and schemes of the project headed by developer U3 Ventures (and designed by architects Cecil Baker + Partners and Studio Bryan Hanes), so we went ahead and put them all in a gallery below– what do you think?
The first meeting round is with the Civic Design Review Committee, per WPL:
Tuesday, April 7 – 1:00 p.m. – Civic Design Review Committee – Room 18-029
Tuesday, April 28 – 1:00-4:00 p.m. – Philadelphia City Planning Commission, 18-029
Wednesday, April 29 – 4:00 p.m. – ZBA (Zoning Board of Adjustment), ZBA Hearing room, 18-002
