23-Unit Shovel Ready Development Opportunity Listing Details & Market Data

846 E. Woodlawn Street, Philadelphia, PA 19138

This is a shovel-ready development site approved for 23 residential units plus 1,400± square foot of commercial space. The property will be delivered with construction permits and the full 10-year real estate tax abatement. The planned building is designed to offer high ceiling heights and spacious two-bedroom apartments units throughout. Additionally, the plans call for a green roof with a common rooftop deck for residents. This project was engineered for comfortable living and ease of build in mind. 

Several bus routes, SEPTA Regional Rail, Olney Transportation Center, and Fern Rock Transportation are within close proximity to the site affording residents access to Center City Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. LaSalle University, Germantown Friends School, Einstein Medical Center, Drexel University College of Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University-East Falls, Temple University Hospital, and the Germantown Cricket Club are all within 3± miles of the property.

Germantown is a historic neighborhood in Philadelphia filled with historic sites and cobblestone roads that has gained prominence by offering convenient access to Center City Philadelphia as well as proximity to recreational activities along the Schuylkill River and Fairmount Park. The retail corridors on Chelten Avenue and Germantown Avenue have seen an influx of new tenants and is home to many national brands including Dunkin, KFC, Rite Aid, Planet Fitness, IGA, PNC Bank, and Walgreens.

Philadelphia’s Germantown areas have seen a recent boom in development including apartment projects, such as Alden Park, Rittenhouse Hill, and Chelten Lofts. In addition, the new Wayne Junction Mixed-Use project is about two miles from the subject property. Ken Weinstein, president of Philly Office Retail and owner of The Trolley Car Diner, has invested roughly $12 million to revitalize the area. In total, 122,581 square feet of old buildings and vacant lots will be redeveloped to create new office space, apartments, and a vintage trolley-car style dinner in the area.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a shovel-ready project with the full 10-year tax abatement in an appreciating Philadelphia neighborhood at one of the lowest costs per unit available.
