    Philadelphia is home to some of the most amazing architecture in America, with a rich stock of fabulous buildings scattered across the city. While we've got more than our share of great structures, we've also got some duds. Case in point, the one-story stucco building at the southeast corner of 7th & Bainbridge.

Astounding Changes on the 1400 Block of S. Colorado

    Astounding Changes on the 1400 Block of S. Colorado - OCF Realty
    A reader tip directed us to the 1400 block of S. Colorado St. in Point Breeze, and we're embarrassed to say we believe it was the first time we ever set foot on the block. The reader noticed some zoning notices toward the southern end of the street, and because it's what we do, we figured we'd check 'em out.

    A couple readers have reached out recently, wondering what's happening on the north side of the 3600 block of Haverford Avenue. You may recall, several years ago, there was a plan floating out there to build a supermarket in Mantua, spanning four city blocks between 36th and 38th Streets, Haverford Avenue and Mount Vernon Street.

Renderings For the Upcoming Apartment Building on Kensington Avenue

    What you see in the photo above are the stair/elevator towers for what will eventually be a four story building with 28 apartments, retail on the first floor, and 10 parking spots. Obviously, the construction is still in the very early stages, so it's impossible to know what the finished product will look like.

There’s an Apartment Building Under Construction on Kensington Avenue

    Over the last few years, we've covered numerous projects on Front Street, watching as this long blighted corridor has slowly come back to life. Intuitively, Front Street's comeback makes sense, with Fishtown booming on one side and South Kensington rapidly improving on the other.

    You'll notice in the photo above that the building is currently under construction. When we went past the property, we were able to get a peek inside from across the street, and it appears that the interior has been totally gutted.

Whoa, 14 New Homes on the 2200 Block of Wilder

    But we were wrong! The City owned only three of the eleven vacant properties, with individuals and developers owning the rest. The reason for our visit was a planned development on the block that called for four new homes in place of a vacant spot on the north side, and three new homes in place of three old homes on the south side.

    We last visited the 26th & Poplar intersection about a year ago, when we told you that construction was getting started on the northeast corner on a pair of mixed-use buildings with a combined 12 units and 3 retail spaces. We were thrilled that the property was getting redeveloped, but were a little bummed about the nature of the project.

Massive Project Coming to 6th & Moore?

    Massive Project Coming to 6th & Moore? - OCF Realty
    The neighborhood around 600 Moore St. is pretty standard South Philly, a bunch of row homes with some first floor storefronts mixed in, and the occasional large commercial or institutional building. For some reason though, the city block that's bounded by 6th Street, 7th Street, Moore Street, and McClellan Street has never fit that rubric.

    The huge surface parking lot at 23rd & Cherry has always struck us as a little odd, considering its prime location on the western side of the Logan Square neighborhood, with easy access to the Schuylkill River Trail.

    Nothing too flashy but it gets the job done and is attractive. I'm in favor.

    It was almost a year ago that we drew your gaze to the northeast corner of 8th & Thompson, noting plans for a large residential development with 71 units on a parcel that was being used as a surface parking lot.
