A 14-story high-rise has been unveiled at 2300-24 Market Street in Center City West. A new tower will rise as a vertical extension atop multiple preexisting structures, which will have their façades preserved. Designed by Tantillo Architecture and developed by Lubert-Adler, the project will add 200 new residential units in the overbuild to the 22 units in the existing buildings. A total of 173,218 square feet of residential space will take up the majority of the structure, as well as 39,855 square feet of office space and 12,048 square feet of space reserved for a future retail or restaurant tenant. The tower will stand around 187 feet tall to the roof, as shown on its Civic Design Review submission. Eight on-site parking spaces and 52 off-site parking spaces will also be included in the project.
The building will feature a somewhat industrial look, with a boxy shape and massive, loft-style windows on the upper floors. Gray cladding will be used between the windows. Exteriors of the existing buildings will not be significantly altered.
Directly across 23rd Street, construction is in progress at 2222 Market Street, an office tower with a stacked-box design. The development can be seen pictured to the left in the first image. The added density will improve the dead zone on the western end of Market Street in Center City and will bring new life to this corner of the city.
No completion date has been announced, though construction may be finished by 2023 or 2024.
