The team behind the high-rise proposed at 200 Spring Garden Street in Northern Liberties has submitted a documentation package for Civic Design Review. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by National Real Estate, the planned tower will rise 14 stories tall and will feature 18,187 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor, as well as 355 residential units spanning 298,668 square feet of space and 106 off-street parking spaces.
National Real Estate Development
Foundation work is underway for a residential building that was formerly planned at 1153 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City, as part of the East Market Phase 3 development. Developed by National Real Estate Development, the project is the latest phase of the East Market complex. The work is in progress on the west side of the project, where three stories of underground parking, capped with a public space, are currently planned, though the space may be replaced with a high-rise building in the future. The previous plan, designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, was proposed to stand at 329 feet and 24 stories tall, with an interesting terra cotta cladding.
The lower basement floors are currently under construction at the Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street in the Market East neighborhood of Center City. The skyscraper is a part of project dubbed East Market Phase 3, which will elevate the profile of a city block that was previously occupied by a prewar parking structure. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec and developed by the National Real Estate Development, the building will stand 372 feet and 23 stories tall and will feature a curvy glass façade.
Over the course of the past year, Philadelphia YIMBY has provided continuous updates on East Market Phase 3 at 1101-53 Chestnut Street, the latest addition to the East Market development that has transformed the Market East neighborhood in Center City over the past few years. But even as construction work kicked into high gear, plans for the development continued to evolve. Earlier this year, we published an extensive review of the development’s original iteration. Developed by National Real Estate Development, it consisted of the 364-foot-tall Jefferson Health Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street, and a smaller, 288-foot-tall residential tower planned to the west. Today we look at the plan’s latest version, which updates the design for the medical tower and puts the residential component on hold, replacing it with a public plaza for the time being.
Permits have been issued for the construction of the Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101-53 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City. Developed by National Real Estate Development, the structure will rise 364 feet and 23 stories tall, becoming the tallest addition to the neighborhood in more than three decades. The interior will hold 750,000 square feet of space, most of which will be allocated for medical use by Jefferson Health. The structure is part of the two-tower East Market Phase 3 complex, which is the latest extension to the multi-block East Market development. Philly YIMBY covered the project in extensive detail in a recent feature article.
