WATCH: Drone Footage Shows New Development in Old Kensington, Fishtown
Oh, drone footage, you’ve done it again. With every sky-high video we get our hands on, we’re even more fascinated by the city’s shifting landscape. (Not to mention, it isn’t a bad way to scope out properties during development.) The latest drone footage to catch our attention? That of Momentum Development’s 1350 Mascher Street.
Originally released in August, the video showcases not only 1350 Mascher Street’s progress (it’s pretty impressive), but also the development of surrounding Old Kensington. Touted as two of the hottest ‘hoods in Philadelphia, Old Kensington and Fishtown have been at the forefront of Philadelphia’s real estate boom. The evidence supports it, too: phase one of 1350 Mascher Street — 10 homes — have already been sold, while only six homes, which are slated to open in summer 2016, remain in phase two (read: move — stat).
And as much as an overall real estate boom factors into rapid development, it’s also the property’s top-notch features that attract buyers. In addition to the site’s easy access to restaurants, retail and transportation, the 20 luxury town homes are outfitted with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a one car garage and a roof deck ideal for entertaining. Inside, homebuyers will find hardwood flooring, granite/quartz countertops and contemporary appliances.
Meanwhile, over in Fishtown, Momentum Development is in the midst of construction for 1124 Palmer Street. While its close proximity to La Colombe, Frankford Hall and Fette Sau is enough to have us move in, the three-level town homes have plenty to boast in their own right (think: a fourth floor deck attached to the master bedroom and an open floor plan for the kitchen and living room).
Both properties will be participating in Open House 2016 (Palmer Street by appointment only), but if you need additional details, visit 1350 Mascher Street, 1124 Palmer Street or any other of Momentum Development’s properties for the scoop on their latest projects.
