Naked Philly has more details on the conversion of the parking lot at 22nd and Lombard into housing. You can read the article here.
Looks like the current plan is to construct three houses, down from an original plan for four. The developer needs variances (it's zoned first floor commercial) and scheduled a hearing with L&I. This was postponed when L&I learned that the developer hadn't yet reviewed the plans with CCRA. This is currently on the CCRA zoning committee for July 22nd. Here's the details from the CCRA agenda:
2143 Lombard Street (CMX-2)
ZBA #22993, Hearing Date: August/date unknown
For the lot adjustment to create three (3) lots (lots 1-3) from four (4) existing lots (2143, 2145,
2147 and 2149 Lombard Street) and for the creation of a shared driveway easement. On lots 1-2:
for the erection of an attached structure with decks at the 2nd-4th floor rear and a roof deck
accessed by a pilot house. For use as a single family dwelling with two (2) interior accessory
parking spaces. On lot 4: for the erection of a semi-detached structure with decks at the 2nd-4th
floor rear and a roof deck accessed by a pilot house for use as a single family dwelling with two
interior accessory parking spaces.
(1) Use – an attached building in the CMX-2 District must contain a non-residential use

propose any non-residential uses.
