Early this summer, we spotted new construction activity at 31st & Thompson, behind the still kind-of new Brewerytown Bottom Dollar. We were pleased to fill you in on the project, dubbed 31 Brewerytown, as Westrum's newest venture into the neighborhood where they previously built Brewerytown Square. When we passed by the project site today, we were really surprised at the amount of progress in just a few months. And then we realized that it's a modular build and everything made much more sense.
In case you don't remember the details of the project, it will feature four-story buildings with a total of sixty-four rental apartments. The units will start at $1,200/month and will have high end features and finishes. Many of the units will have balcony space, and parking will be available for some tenants as well. Check out the look of the project:
If you'd like more info on the project, visit the 31 Brewerytown website. And if you want to watch a building get put together module by module, we suggest you get over there this week. If you've never witnessed a module project going up, it's a pretty cool sight.
Here's hoping that the project is a rousing success and it inspires Westrum to build on the large lot across the street that's currently housing the unassembled modules which they also own. The intersection's total rebirth has been a long time coming and it would not only be a wonderful thing for people who live in the neighborhood, but it would boon for growth on the Girard Avenue corridor. With Brewerytown buzzing, we'd bet on it happening soon.
