Last month, we wrote about a foundation that a reader noticed on the 2100 block of Clymer St., a tiny block in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood.


Based on some reader comments, we now understand that the new construction is an extension of the building next door, creating a veritable palace on Clymer St.! And in case you’re wondering, the homeowner is wasting little time building his Clymer Street Dream Home.


Still missing some windows. And look, a third story!

We’re impressed with how quickly construction is moving along, and how well the addition fits in with the rest of the houses on the block. Even though it has a third story, the setback preserves the consistent cornice line created by the other houses.

Based on the current speed of construction, we expect the project will be complete in… two or three hours.
