Fishtown development continues to boom, but its next door neighbor South Kensington shows no signs of slowing down either. We just received word from MGC Real Estate Group that another batch of townhomes are set to break ground immediately in the burgeoning neighborhood.
Yesterday AGA Developers (the same folks behind Trenton Stables and Frankford Square in Fishtown) settled a property at 182-188 W. Berks Street in South Kensington that's currently a car lot. The development, dubbed South Square, will include 17 townhomes and two triplexes, which will each have a commercial space.
Each townhome will feature a driveway with two parking spaces, a roof deck, three bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. They'll have 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, L-shaped kitchens, finished basements, and balconies off the master bedrooms.
The starting price of the townhomes will be about $450,000.
Leigh Calarco of MGC Real Estate Group says the Harman Deutsch-designed project will be built in four phases, with the first one scheduled to be completed in August.
