Development Continues in Fishtown/East Kensington

Three new houses at the corner of Frankford & Montgomery Ave.

As most of our readers know, Fishtown and East Kensington are experiencing some of the highest rates of residential development in the city. After a delicious brew and pretzel at Frankford Hall, we decided to enjoy the twenty rainless minutes of the day with a stroll up Frankford Ave. As we reached Montgomery Ave., we noticed two brand new houses and one partially constructed house right on the corner. The two completed houses are rental properties, and we’re not sure about the last house. It’s just amazing to think about the changes on this corner, when you consider what it looked like just a couple of years ago.

A look to the past. Image from Google. A nicely maintained lot. Definitely a shame to lose those trees.
