Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that construction work has not yet started on the 15-story, 150-room AC Hotel by Marriott at 230 North 13th Street in Chinatown, Center City. Developed by Baywood Hotels, the development will add a vertical extension atop the existing prewar building, bringing the structure’s total height to 181 feet. Permits were issued in May of last year and the building currently stands vacant, though construction work has not apparently started yet.

The Convention Center area to the north and east of City Hall has long been a notable hotspot for hotels, with Marriott being one of the key hospitality operators. The hospitality chain is planning another addition to the area. The AC Hotel, part of the AC Mattiott Hotel brand, would stand at 230 North 13th Street, across from the Vine Street Expressway, rising 181 feet and 15 stories. Baywood Hotels is the project developer and Bergmann Asssociates is the designer. The base of the high-rise would incorporate the historic Big Brothers Big Sisters of America building currently at the site.
