And Even More Happenings on Leithgow Street

Over the last several days, we’ve given you the heads up about a number of properties currently under construction and about to be under construction on the 900 block of skinny Leithgow Street, in Northern Liberties. Today, we have a little more action to report, just a block further north.

Two projects

1036 N Leithgow St. is currently under construction and is already on the market, listed for $440K. It replaces a blighted building that has been torn down. The developer is Fernando Lopez.

In the past

The new structure will have about 2,300 sqft of living space, 3 bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. In addition, it will have a roof deck and 1-car parking. As you can see, framing has progressed and a facade should be going up soon.


Meanwhile, just to the south, a foundation has been poured somewhat recently. The lot in question is only 13.25′ wide, which means the home will be just a pinch wider than 966 N Leithgow St., which we told you about yesterday. Because of the vacant land on either side, we can’t tell whether this is 1030 N Leithgow St., or 1032 N Leithgow St.

Either way, it’s gonna be a fairly little house.

The skinny foundation isn't too deep either

With desirable parcels on major streets getting harder and harder to find, we suspect we’ll be seeing more of these mini-homes go up on the narrow side streets in this neighborhood in the years to come. Is that a problem for buyers? Not yet, from what we can tell.
