When we last checked in at 249-57 S. 13th St., an old PPA garage had just been demolished, clearing the way for a new six-story building that will be marketed toward low-income LGBT seniors. We first told you about this project over a year ago, noting that this 56-unit, mixed-use building was a unique project, with few analogs in the US.

As you can see, the building is mostly up, but sheathing and all of the interior work remain to be done. By the end of the year, we’re guessing that the building will be approaching completion, and we’ll check back in to see how closely it resembles the rendering below.
