A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has captured the completed exterior of Riverwalk South, a 362-foot-tall, 32-story high-rise under construction at 60 North 23rd Street in Center City West. Designed by Gensler and developed by the PMC Property Group, the building stands next to the Schuylkill River and is part of the two-towered Riverwalk complex. The development is part of a new hub of high-rise buildings underway along and near Market Street.

The tower slab pair is styled in a sleek Modernist aesthetic with crisply defined edges and prominent balcony bays. Blue-glass exteriors alternate between sheer smooth surfaces and gently rippling facades, channeling an aesthetic reminiscent of the adjacent river. The rather conservative, rectilinear forms are made more interesting by their staggered and gently angled position in relation to one another. As such, the composition creates a dynamic effect that creates varying juxtapositions depending on the viewer’s location.

Upon full completion, the pet-friendly development will offer an amenity suite that spans around 50,000 square feet. The complex offers a round-the-clock front desk attendant, indoor and outdoor resident lounge space, an outdoor picnic patio, co-working areas and private office pods, and on-site pet care. The fitness component includes a gym, sports courts (basketball, volleyball, paddle tennis, platform tennis, badminton, squash, and soccer), a cycling studio, yoga and Pilates studios, and an infinity pool with sun terraces.

    I’ll be looking to sign up for one of these apartments.
