4224 Baltimore Ave rendering

It’s been months since we last revisited the mixed-use project planned for 4224 Baltimore Avenue, but we’ve now finally caught wind of new information regarding the long-stalled development: construction of the planned 132-unit building is slated for late summer 2016.

According to West Philly Local, the news was shared by developer U3 Ventures and property owner Clarkmore LP in a recent letter to the Spruce Hill Community Association Zoning Committee and the neighborhood at large. Despite lack of specifics, WPL reports the mixed-use apartment building is anticipated to include a fitness center and full-service restaurant with outdoor seating, “among other retail options.”

Previously, we told you the development was aimed at young professionals and would include rentals and for-sale condos, as well as bike parking, underground car parking, and more than 17,000 square feet of commercial space. The plan was approved by the Zoning Board of Adjustment in June in spite of weeks of delays, WPL reports.
