Planning and Zoning19 Aug 2011 09:45 am

The developer of the lot at 921-931 Ellsworth got in touch with us and let us know that they have recently been awarded tax credits from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency which will allow them to begin construction on the senior housing project between Thanksgiving and Christmas of this year.

Currently they are working to complete their civil engineering and architectural plans.  To do so they will be conducting two weeks of tests on the soils below the parking lot.  To that end they have an executed agreement with the City of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Parking Authority.  These tests are scheduled to begin on 22 August and last until 5 September.

During this time period the parking lot will be closed to any vehicles not involved with the construction so that the drilling equipment has room to work.  At the conclusion of this work the parking lot will once again be open for general parking.

If you have any questions, feel free to email parking (at) passyunk.org and we will pass those questions along to the developer.
