Brewerytown Master Plan

Philadelphia, PA

Westrum Development Company has assembled approximately 16 acres, a mix of abandoned lots, vacant factories and former stables, to create a masterplanned mixed-use community in this infill corridor adjacent to Fairmount Park. The masterplan provides new market-rate and affordable housing components – townhomes, stacked townhomes, condos, and loft-style apartments, totaling 595 units, with an average overall density of 37 units per acre. The retail component will include a 50,000-square-foot supermarket with residential apartments above. Another development converting the old Acme warehouse will offer 61 loft-style apartments for low-income tenants; 15 units of infill housing and rehabbed properties in the surrounding neighborhood will be sold as affordable units. The project includes the renovation of several historic buildings into loft-style residential space while preserving their original exteriors. Nearly all new construction will utilize rear-entry garages. Many existing and proposed restaurant and retail establishments will be within walking distance. Demolition work began in 2007 and home construction is anticipated to start in 2008.
