Construction to begin soon on 48 condo development in Hawthorne

48 new condos are ready to be built in Hawthorne. On the 700 block of 12th Street sits an empty lot that was once home of the New Hope Temple Baptist Church which was demolished last year.


Construction is expected to begin within the next 45 days, with a plan of being completed by the end of 2016. These two and three bedroom condos will sell for between $389,000 and $450,000.

Designed by JKRP Architects and being built by the Center City Development Group in conjunction with Noah Ostroff, Garden Square will consist of 36 two-bedroom, two-bath units and 12 three-bedroom, three-bath units. [Full disclosure: I used to edit Ostroff’s real estate blog.]

The “garden” in Garden Square’s name refers to the landscaped courtyard that occupies the space between the two rows of six four-story buildings. Each of the buildings will contain four units; the building exteriors overlap with dark projecting window bays to form a unified whole.
