The 32-story, 380-unit Riverwalk South, the taller component of the two-tower Riverwalk project has risen to the halfway point at 60 North 23rd Street in Center City West. The tower will soon be 362 feet tall next to its 315-foot companion to the north. While the north tower is horizontally aligned with the streets of Philadelphia, the south tower sits at a 20-degree angle that makes the wide south elevation of the building face the Schuylkill River. Designed by Gensler and developed by PMC Property Group, the complex will feature a total of 711 units and retail space in the towers’ three-story bases that are split by Arch Street.
In the December update, the south tower stood around a third of the way up. The progress seems to be moving at a somewhat slower pace compared to the north tower, though the building continues to rise and is coming into view on the skyline, just as the north tower did in late 2019.
The tower crane will soon need to jump higher as the reinforced concrete structure has made its way up to just under the crane. The concrete slabs of the building now reach 14 stories above the ground and the core of the tower rises four stories above the residential slab. The tower appears to be at a point where cladding installation may start soon, and the building could top out by summer.
The south tower is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022.
