Developer PH Properties is building four houses at 424-28 Poplar St. in Northern Liberties. They broke ground in the past week or so, and we spotted the formwork for the foundations today.
The rest of the formwork
Once built, the homes will be of the single-family variety and will have rear access garages. There will be one curb cut that provides access to all four garages.
Considering all the development that’s taken place in Northern Liberties in the past decade, you would think that there wouldn’t be vacant lots available to accommodate four new construction homes, let alone the twenty being built on Hope St. that we mentioned earlier this week. Yet somehow, these parcels have remained vacant, presenting developers with yet more opportunities to build in the neighborhood.
As for the development on Poplar and Lawrence, we’re just hoping that the architects don’t make too much of an effort to match the surrounding architecture. Let’s just say it wouldn’t be in anyone’s best interest.
Yes, this is the house next door. We don't know what's going on here, either.
