According to a zoning application that went before the ZBA yesterday, three duplexes should soon be on the way for 1834-38 Poplar St., in Francisville. These three lots, which have been vacant for some time, were acquired by developer Mark Adams (not to be confused with Adams Mark) over the past couple of years.
The application states that these will be four stories and quite tall (44′ to be exact), and will have roof decks. With that kind of height, we imagine that these will be condos, rather than rentals. And what a location to build! This could very well be the epicenter of development in Francisville at the moment.
As we’ve told you in the past, TMB Group is in the process of building five duplexes, right on the other side of 19th Street. The homes nearby on Ginnodo St. are moving along. The Opal Street homes we told you about recently are about a block away. And if you’ve been in the area any time recently, you’ve surely noticed wholesale demolition taking place, in preparation for a huge Loonstyn development on the southeast corner of 19th & Poplar.
