Few things are more relaxing than spending some time walking through the leafy canopies of springtime in the Spring Garden neighborhood. The blocks north of Spring Garden St. in this area are jam-packed with stately rowhouses and mature trees, offering a calm, lovely little nook not far from the energy of Center City. At 1921 Green St., however, the scene wasn’t always so picturesque. This corner was home to a one-story laundromat in the past, but, as we told you back in 2021, there were plans to knock down this building and turn it into ten condos. Our last visit saw the site recently cleared, and our visit today finds this stately building looking finished – and pretty darn nice.

This new construction condo project comes to us from Archive Development, who brought in Canno Design to a lend their eye towards the traditional-inspired look. While things are looking lovely today, this project wasn’t without its fair share of controversy: the demo here caused some damage to the adjacent building next door, leading its residents to be evacuated. Thankfully, those problems have since been resolved (and the building was sold soon after) and both buildings are now safe and welcoming residents. Let’s take another gander at this new ten-unit building, named The Mason.

We are loving the look here, with only the two-bedroom penthouse unit still available for $850K. No shock there, as new construction in this area is hard to come by, especially at sub-seven-figure price points. We are also thrilled to see little sign of the impact of the construction issues, as both the Mason and its neighbor are looking resplendent on a day that lives up to the neighborhood’s name. Oh, and if you’re looking for amenities close by, OCF Coffee House is just around the corner along with all of the offerings of Fairmount Avenue’s commercial strip. Sure seems like a great excuse to get out of the house and enjoy the weather to us.
