The company cofounded by real estate developer Sean Schellenger, the victim of a fatal stabbing last summer near Rittenhouse Square, is moving forward with a pair of residential complexes in burgeoning neighborhoods northeast of central Philadelphia.
Streamline Group, based in South Philadelphia, is scheduled to present the proposals to the Philadelphia Civic Design Review board on Oct. 2, according to an agenda posted to the panel's website. The CDR board offers suggestions on the city's biggest development proposals as part of Philadelphia's planning process.
One of Streamline's projects would replace what's now a vacant lot at 2600-40 Hagert St. in Kensington, not far from the corner of York Street and Aramingo Avenue, according to plans provided to the CDR panel. It features a row of townhouses along Hagert Street and a row of condo or apartment buildings along Boston Street, for a total of 41 dwellings.
The other project is a complex of 44 townhouses and condos or apartments in the city's Poplar section at 1500 Randolph St., south of Oxford Street between Fifth and Sixth Streets.
Schellenger, 37, was stabbed to death in an altercation with a bicycle courier who allegedly became involved in an argument the developer was having with another person on July 12 near the corner of Chancellor and 17th Streets in Center City. Streamline has since then been led by its cofounder Michael Stillwell and Schellenger's mother, Linda, a former executive with a Merck & Co subsidiary.
Streamline's other large ongoing projects include a complex of duplexes and apartments or condos encompassing 82 homes on land across from the Shops at Schmidts retail center in Northern Liberties.
