Over the years, the 400 block of Fairmount has seen some major changes take place. Callahan Ward built three homes in a deep lot at 444-48 Fairmount Ave. They’ve managed to get an extra home in the project by orienting the homes toward a drive-aisle instead of the street. Another three homes are now under construction at 414 Fairmount Ave. That’s going to be three homes on Fairmount, two triplexes on Wallace Street, and eight parking spots from what we can tell.
That is not even the end of it. The Trans-Atlantic building is finally being converted into apartments. So far, the homes have started to spring up on 5th Street, and some demolition is taking place at the warehouse building. The people behind this project are PRDC Developers and on the website for the project, you can find renderings and floorplans of what’s on the way. You can also find that twenty five townhomes are priced in the mid-$500s, and forty-one apartments are going to be created in what’s left of the warehouse building.
This will be an amazing residential conversion that will change this block dramatically when it’s all done. The future’s looking bright for this section of Northern Liberties.
