Maxfield Tower a Wrap on Parrish Street

New building looks better than most these days

We last visited the 1500 block of Parrish Street last summer, which when you consider the ice and snow and frigid temperatures of late, feels like a couple of lifetimes ago. Back then, in those toasty days, we brought a new project at 1526 Parrish St. to your attention. At that point, the four story building from Carmel Developments had just been framed out. These developers also have projects on Frankford Avenue and Buttonwood Street, and typically offer something a little unusual from an architectural standpoint. On Parrish Street, where their project is now finished and has been dubbed "Maxfield Tower," they've continued this tradition.

The four-story building has, as we told you previously, three condo units and a first floor commercial space (with very high ceilings!). The commercial space is for offices for the developers, which makes a ton of sense on this block. The three residential units are on the market, with one of the units listed at $399K and a slightly larger one listed at $429K. All the units have more than 1,500 sqft of living space, with the higher priced unit coming in a little larger and getting an extra half bathroom. Oh, and don't forget that Crossfit Fairmount is pretty much next door. So no excuse for future residents to not be jacked.

If you walk to the end of the block, you'll see the construction zone on the 1600 block of Ogden Street. We last visited here in August and in the time that's elapsed several projects have progressed while others have wrapped up entirely. It's quite a change for this block, which was once overrun with vacant lots. And while both Ogden and Parrish Streets still have a number of vacant lots to speak of, our bet is that both get fully redeveloped in the years to come.
