The new single family home at 4274 Flad in the Shaw neighborhood is nearing completion. This is the first of two new single family homes currently under construction in Shaw.
This site was once home to a two-family building that suffered a rear collapse. The building was later demolished. While some in the neighborhood mourned the loss of a historic building in such an intact district, the site was not vacant for long. The demolition of the old two-family was completed in May 2012; a permit for the new construction below was issued in July 2012.
Below is a recent photograph of the nearly completed building:
