In November, we brought you news of a massive project currently underway by McSpain Properties, The Fairmount at Brewerytown. The western part of the large, rundown Acme warehouse on the corner of 31st and Master Street is being redeveloped into an apartment complex with ground floor retail, and we snagged the floor plans so you could take a sneak peak before the first units are ready in June. (The east side of the building had already been converted into apartments by Pennrose a few years ago). McSpain's plans for their side of the warehouse include 162 industrial-chic apartments complete with exposed duct work, energy efficient appliances, and "soaring" vaulted ceilings. A 24-hour market is planned, and the building's amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a rooftop pool, a dog walking area (the building will be pet-friendly, regardless of breed) and hybrid car-charging stations.
We'll head inside for a new installation of Curbed Philly's Hard Hat Tours, but we know you'd understand if we waited until it was a tad warmer. Stay tuned.
