Renderings have been revealed for a large mixed-use development located at 1100 Wharton Street in Passyunk Square, South Philadelphia. Designed by JKRP Architects and developed by the Alterra Property Group, the complex includes several buildings.

Other existing buildings in the block are a 71,360-square-foot mixed-use building with 45 residential units, a 18,616-square-foot police station, and a 51,010-square-foot office building. A new fire station is also planned to be built as part of the development.
