The 1300 block of S. Chadwick Street in Point Breeze is in the middle of a transformation. Until the beginning of this year, this block featured a shocking number of vacant lots. Notably, its eastern side had a collection of lots with a combined length of over half a football field.

In the past

Back in January, groundbreaking took place for a twelve home development that's filling in most of the giant lot pictured above. To date, four homes have been completed, and a second phase of four more homes have been framed out. In addition, there are plans for more homes to fill in some of the vacant lots on the western side of the block, and those should be getting started pretty soon.

Current view

To celebrate the completion of the first phase of homes on this block, OCF Realty (the company that pays for this website of course) is hosting a block party on Sunday, August 3rd, from 2pm until 6pm. Neighbors, friends, and family are invited to join the fun, where there will be BBQ, booze, live music, games for kids, and an opportunity to walk through one of the new homes. C'mon and check it out. It's not like you'll have a better time watching the Phillies game on Sunday afternoon.
