As we reported back in April, PHA is constructing fifty-one new units on the 2000 block of N. 11th St., which are replacing the demolished Norris Apartments high-rise, a 179-unit building originally constructed in the 1950′s. The new Norris Apartments are located a block from the North Philadelphia Septa station, right next door to the Temple’s soon-to-be-built Diamond Green complex, which we wrote about last week. In the past six months, construction has been ongoing and it appears to be on target for the originally anticipated Spring completion date.
