Graduate Hospital has changed rapidly over the years, with new construction replacing blighted rowhomes on what seems like nearly every street. The block at 17th and Carpenter in particular undergone a transformation, with the 11-townhome development Carpenter Square setting the tone back in 2014.
Now following in Carpenter Square’s footsteps are the Residences at Carpenter Square, just one block away. The development includes 20 high-end townhomes designed by local architecture firm Harman Deutsch Architecture, which is behind a number of the developments popping up in Kensington and South Broad, as well.
The development is still under construction, but the developers recently announced that the first delivery of four townhomes drops this month.
They range in size and price tags, starting at $399,000 for a 1,000-square-foot unit to $499,000 for a 2,000-square-foot unit. All 20 homes have roof decks.
Those price tags are pretty on par with the median price of homes in Graduate Hospital, which hovers around $429,000.
Construction at 1729-1739 Carpenter Street is expected to be complete in December 2016.
