New Mixed Use Development on Berks Street Adds to South Kensington

on May 29, 2018
| News

150 Berks StreetSouth Kensington has been seeing some of the most new construction in Philadelphia recently.  Some of this construction has made its way up to Berks Street, which used to have a lot of vacancy west of Front Street.  A new mixed use development is soon to be built at 150 West Berks Street, just a couple blocks west of the SEPTA Berks Street station on the Market/Frankford line.  This new development will have townhouses and apartments and is being designed by Harman Deutsch Architecture.

The development at 150 West Berks Street will have 23 townhouses.  Nine of those townhouses will be on Berks Street, six of them will be behind the Berks Street houses and in the middle of the block, and four will be on Mascher Street and four more will be on Hancock Street.  At the corners of Berks and Mascher and Berks and Hancock Streets will be two small apartment buildings, bookending the Berks Street townhouses. Each of these apartment buildings will have three apartments on the second, third, and fourth floors and the first floors will each have retail spaces, likely for small neighborhood businesses like cafes or restaurants.  Each retail space will have 1,700 square feet of floor space. The Berks Street townhouses will be live/work spaces and will have fourth floor terraces. All the townhouses will have garages and green roofs. The top apartments will have roof decks. The exteriors will have red brick, corrugated and flat metal panels, and glass balcony railings.

South Kensington’s building boom continues to push the development northward.  Several smaller developments are happening on, or near, Berks Street, like the Southsquare townhouse and condo development a block away.  As redevelopment has continued along Berks Street near Temple University in Ludlow, Berks Street is becoming known as a desirable street to live on.
