A large, irregularly-shaped lot at 918 North Delaware Avenue in Northern Liberties in North Philadelphia is being redeveloped into Wellshaus, a six-building complex that will bring retail and 462 units to the rapidly growing neighborhood. Developed by Core Realty and designed by L2Partridge, the buildings will rise eight stories and will stand out prominently thanks to their sheer bulk.
918 North Delaware Avenue
Delaware Avenue is a major thoroughfare running along the eponymous Delaware River (though certain sections feature different names). Large stretches of the street are either industrial, either presently or formerly, or largely suburban, with massive shopping centers and parking lots, though the city has long planned> to transform it into a dense urban corridor. Now, these dreams appear on the verge of becoming a reality, with a large number of proposals planned for the avenue. Some could be very far out, though others may see a shovel in the ground before the leaves turn. YIMBY takes you on a tour of all of the biggest proposed developments.
