In this month's Philadelphia magazine, Philadelphia Inquirer architecture critic Inga Saffron confesses to a phobia of eye doctors and says the 2400 block of Panama is the prettiest street in the city. "Every house is painted a different color," she tells magazine staffer Victor Fiorillo. "It's very narrow and has Belgian bricks, and in the spring it's overhung with cherry blossoms and magnolias and mimosas, a canopy of pink blossoms." It's also close to two parks: Fitler Square and Schuylkill River. This particular house was designed by AIA award-winning architect Wesley Wei, and it hews to the modern style he employs for single-family residences (he also designed the Ayer Condominiums). If you like modern, the design is going to sell you. If you want a terrific location, the block will sell you. But if you want space and ample parking, this ain't the place for you.
