In the spring, we told you about a new construction project on the 1000 block of Fairmount Ave., across from the southern portion of the PHA Richard Allen Homes development. We were in the area last week, and the project, called Fairmount Abode, is pretty much finished.
According to a Facebook page set up by builders Carmel Developments, the building contains six condo units. Each unit has two bedrooms, two plus bathrooms, and a deeded parking space in the basement.
It’s wonderful to see this new building go up on the fringe of the Spring Arts developments and a couple blocks past Northern Liberties. Perhaps it will inspire other developers to push past the traditional boundaries we’ve seen in recent years. We imagine plenty of very interested parties will keep a close eye on the sales of these units.
We’ll see what happens…
