Recently, Philadelphia YIMBY published an overview of Riverwalk, also known as Riverwalk Philly, a rental complex at 60 North 23rd Street in Center City West (alternately Logan Square). Designed by Gensler and developed and built by the PMC Property Group, the development consists of two high-rise buildings that will offer a total of 711 rental units. The 315-foot-tall, 28-story, 331-unit Riverwalk North is already open for residents, while the slightly larger, 362-foot-tall, 32-story, 380-unit Riverwalk South is still under construction. Today, YIMBY looks at the development’s 50,000-square-foot amenity suite and the development’s extensive resident services.

Riverwalk offers a round-the-clock front desk attendant, sited in a sunlit foyer with ample seating space and views of the Schuylkill River. The resident lounge offers communal gathering space, a pool table, a bar, and more. The fitness component includes a gym, sports courts (basketball, volleyball, paddle tennis, platform tennis, badminton, squash, and soccer), a cycling studio, and yoga and Pilates studios. The podium roof deck sports an outdoor infinity pool and a picnic patio that is well-suited for watching the sun set over University City across the river. The development offers co-working areas and private office pods, and on-site pet care.

Riverwalk also features on-site Starbucks and Sweetgreen shops, as well as delivery service from the Giant supermarket located on the lower levels. The complex also offers bicycle storage, a bike share program, and parking with car charging, available for an additional fee.

Scroll below for an extended look at the amenities Riverwalk has to offer.

  1. How about you poll residents that were impacted by Hurricane Ida? How do they feel about possibly living through flood events on a yearly basis? Also how does Giant feel about the $100,000’s of damage as well as a 1 month closure of its store? Again, an event that could happen almost yearly depending on hurricane season….

    • So, are you saying there shouldn’t be anything built along either river? Ever? Should we tear down existing buildings because they’re flood-prone due to climate change now? To answer your question, I’m sure the residents, and Giant, don’t feel great about those prospects, but I don’t think this means we have to be a negative nancy on every development story near the river.

      I’m fearful that it’s going to happen again. The river sits on a flood plain
      and it’s prone to flooding, even with heavy steady rain. Less than a decade
      ago a “tropical storm” did similar damage to the lot where the Giant now sits. The problem with Ida was the new pumps along the Vine Street canyon failed…nice looking complex, Philly is on the upswing.
      new pumps along the Vine Street canyon failed.

    I thought the original design called for a pedestrian bridge connecting the two towers.

  3. Really interesting post!
