    Seven Unit Building On Tap For Brewerytown Block - OCF Realty
    Previously, 1505 N. Stillman St. was a vacant residential property and 1507 N. Stillman St. was a one-story garage that looked like it was on the verge of collapse. The properties were on the market for over a year before the developers stepped in, paying just under $100K for the pair a couple months ago.

    A Decade of Park(ing) Days For Philadelphia - OCF Realty
    Sep, 15, 2017 | No Comments Did you know that today is Park(ing) Day? Have you ever heard of Park(ing) Day? If not, don't be fooled by the name. Park(ing) Day is not a national holiday dedicated to making out as it was described in the 1950s, nor is it a special day dedicated to NIMBYs who only care about parking (that's Tuesdays in Fishtown, btw).

    The Pineville is Coming Soon, It Just Needs a Wall First - OCF Realty
    We wonder whether the shuttering of the bar might have been at all related to structural problems with the building. If you look at a Google Street View image of the building from last year, you can see that the entire side wall of the building was removed and replaced with cinderblocks.

Will the Hahnemann Sale Have Real Estate Implications?

Parking garage at Broad & Vine

I hope that the hospital survives. But it would be nice if they would develop the two big empty lots, the one on Broad and Race and the other across Vine St. A couple of high rises would be nice.

    Will the Hahnemann Sale Have Real Estate Implications? - OCF Realty
    Disclaimer: The following story is pure speculation and we're writing it without any inside information whatsoever. That being said, if any of this comes true, you heard it here first. You might have seen the reports, a couple weeks back, that Paladin Healthcare has a deal in place to purchase Saint Christopher's Children's Hospital in North Philly and Hahnemann University Hospital on North Broad Street for $170M.

Developers bought this property for a rather reasonable in the winter of 2016, and went to CCRA a few months later with a plan to build four homes with six parking spots.

New Apartment Building Stands Out on Parrish Street

We were traveling up 16th Street through Francisville yesterday, and some new construction caught our eye on the 1500 block of Parrish Street. A new building is still getting framed out at 1533 Parrish St., and it’s clearly visible from Ridge Avenue.

    At the beginning of this year though, we shared the news that new developers had purchased the property and were moving forward with a plan to finally demolish the building. At the time though, we didn't know what they were planning to do here, as they hadn't yet pulled permits.

    440 N. 15th St. has a ton of potential, considering its large size, its permissive zoning, and its location just off North Broad Street. But it hasn't come close to living up to that potential for a really long time, as it's been used as a parking garage for the Inquirer building for many years.
