Good Foods Flats, 4030 Baring Streets | Rendering: Cross Properties

  • Cross Properties co-founder Kevin Michals tells Property’s James Jennings that off-site modular construction has already begun on his firm’s Good Food Flats, a 44-unit, 175-bed apartment project coming to 40th & Baring Streets in West Powelton this summer. Not only will the rent be priced with college students’ budgets in mind, Good Food Flats is to be marketed to the students of Drexel University’s Hospitality and Sports Management program, accommodating the gastronomically inclined with test and commercial kitchens, to which management would invite chefs to teach their craft to residents.
  • According to Curbed Philly, the University City District announced yesterday that it has inked a deal with the owners of the Trolley Car Diner (Mt Airy) and Trolley Car Café (East Falls) to incorporate a similar concept—called the Trolley Car Station—in its $2.1 million redesign of the 40th Street Trolley Portal, which it hopes to unveil sometime next year as a “social hub.”
