After a long process of demolition of existing structures, excavation work is underway at 918 North Delaware Avenue (also known as 918-80 North Delaware Avenue) in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. The site is one of the largest along the avenue, with adjacent streets forming a curvy footprint for the future six structures. Designed by L2Partridge and developed by Core Realty, the 426-unit project will include a total of 418,480 square feet of floor space within the five main buildings.
918 North Delaware Avenue
Demolition work is nearly complete at 918 North Delaware Avenue (aka 918-80 North Delaware Avenue) in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. The large site, which used to feature a number of prewar industrial structures, will be redeveloped as a 418,480-square-foot complex with a total of 462 residential units. Designed by L2Partridge and developed by Core Realty, the project will consist of five buildings that will stand seven stories tall, as well as an additional low-rise structure. The buildings will measure 80,995, 101,648, 74,677, 59,799, 95,615, and 5,776 square feet. All will be clad in different shades of brick cladding and glass.
Permits have been issued for the construction of three mixed-use buildings at 918-80 North Delaware Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. Designed by HDO Architecture, the development will feature 462 residential units spread across five buildings, with a sixth structure holding building amenities. Permits were recently issued for Building A, Building B, and Building D. Each will rise seven stories and feature a green roof.
Over the course of the past three decades, many high-rise projects have been proposed along the Delaware River, yet most bit the dust before construction had ever begun. One of these is the 915-foot-tall, 66-story Bridgeman’s View Tower planned in 2007 at 900 North Delaware Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia, a surprising location for such a tall skyscraper proposal, given the area’s then-lowrise profile. Designed by Studio Agoos Lovera and developed by Marc Stien, Ryan Roberts, and an undisclosed North Jersey real estate investment team, the tower was planned to feature a mix of residential office, hotel, and retail space, with 794 condominiums and 200 to 300 boutique hotel rooms.
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.
