Discussion about future development of Washington Avenue has gained momentum lately as developer Bart Blatstein recently introduced plans for the vacant corner of Broad and Washington Avenue. Now, a proposal has been put forth for a mixed-use development at 2401 Washington Ave.

The proposal was revealed to residents attending a South of South Neighborhood Association zoning meeting this past week, the Passyunk Post reports

Architecture firm Harman Deutsch rolled out plans for a 5-story mixed use building that would include 113 residencies set above commercial space on the first floor.  Of particular interest is the proposal's inclusion of a dog park, a neighborhood park and indoor parking. 

While the project would still be a long way off if approved, it signals continued interest in adding new housing and attractions in the neighborhood.
