After emerging on the right side of earlier financial troubles, the swath of land on North 9th Street between Roebling Street and Driggs Avenue will soon be under-used no more. The development at 212 North 9th Street has fallen somewhat under the radar (after all, the new building permit was approved back in 2008), but a tipster sent in construction photos showing that the seven-story, 33-unit building is almost done. With exteriors designed by the ubiquitous Karl Fischer (because of course it is) and
developed interiors by the Meshberg Group, which has a description of the project on its website, the building is constructed of black brick, black granite, and white metal windows. The building will have a roof deck. Construction was slated to be complete in early 2015so it's a bit behind schedule, but not by much. It'll likely be ready for renters in a few months. UPDATE: Adam Meshberg of Meshberg Group writes in to tell is that the building will be condos, not rentals, and that the developer is Fortis Property Group Sales will start in a month or two.
