Last week we told you about some development that could be happening at a vacant lot at 6th & Moore. Now we have news of yet another long-vacant lot being developed.

Four single-family homes are in the works for this Pennsport lot at 4th and McKean.

Orange zoning appeal stickers posted on site at 4th and McKean Street (officially 2001 South 4th Street), show that the lot will be split into four separate parcels, each housing a single-family residence.

The lot has been in its current state for almost exactly five years, when a fire consumed the 11-unit apartment building on October 7, 2010. The damage wrought by the blaze ultimately led to the demolition of the structure. 17 people were displaced due to the fire, and the neighborhood was left with the empty lot, a sight that is becoming more and more rare these days throughout South Philly.
