A prewar-style gas station will soon be relocated off the site of the 20th+Arch proposal at 2000 Arch Street in Center City West, where construction could start soon. The proposal will add height and density which, while not significant for the skyline, will be imposing for the area. The vicinity of the site feels empty, even though skyscrapers stand the site just blocks away. The building was designed by L2P, which has crafted the previous iteration for the 12-story Wellshaus project at 918 North Delaware Avenue. The building will stand 15 stories above ground at a possible total height of 260 feet. The property is owned and managed by Parkway Commercial Properties, which also runs a number of parking lots in Center City.
2000 Arch Street
Philly YIMBY is launching its first annual December Development Countdown, where, in reverse height order, we look at the 31 tallest buildings proposed or under construction in Philadelphia. Number 31 on the list is 20th+Arch, a 260-foot-tall, 15-story office building planned at 2000 Arch Street in Center City West (alternatively in Logan Square). Developed by Parkway Commercial Properties (aka the Parkway Corporation) and designed by L2P Architects, the building will offer roughly 400,000 square feet of office space. No construction work has yet taken place.
There is a handful of proposals just to the east of the Schuylkill River, one of which was unveiled last year at 2000 Arch Street at the corner of 20th Street and Arch Street in the Logan Square neighborhood in northwest Center City. The proposal may bring Chub, an out-of-state tenant, into the city of Philadelphia, and would further boost the area’s amount of development. With the possible developer of Parkway Corporation, the building is planned to rise 260 feet with 15 floors.
