Construction Tops Out at The Box Factory Lofts at 31 East Columbia Avenue in Fishtown
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has observed continued construction progress at the eight-story, 63-unit Box Factory Lofts at 31 East Columbia Avenue in Fishtown, Kensington. Designed by SITIO Architecture + Urbanism, the structure expands the original Box Factory Lofts, a four-story prewar industrial building located at 21 East Columbia Avenue with 20 rental units. The new building will add 67,342 square of feet to the development and introduce a new shared lobby for the two structures, as well as a common courtyard. The new building will feature ground-level retail, elevator service, covered parking for ten cars (including three car share and one accessible space) and 30 bicycles, and a roof deck. Permits list Equinox Management and Construction as the contractor and indicate a construction cost of $13 million.
