At the start of the month, YIMBY shared published an extensive look at 1600 North Broad Street (alternately 1406 Cecil B. Moore Avenue), a 15-story, 245-unit residential project proposed next to the Temple University campus in North Philadelphia, followed by an analysis of the floor plans and residential units. In today’s installment, we look at the project’s more technical aspects as garnered from the Civic Design Review submission, such as site plans, traffic patterns, zoning table, the Complete Streets Handbook Checklist, and the Civic Design Review Sustainable Design Checklist. Designed by JKRP Architects and developed by Tower Investments, the building will rise 189 feet tall, span 238,090 square feet, and feature parking for 64 cars and 82 bicycles.
Earlier this month, YIMBY shared an extensive publication covering 1600 North Broad Street (alternately 1406 Cecil B. Moore Avenue), a 15-story, 245-unit residential development slated to rise across from the Temple University campus in North Philadelphia. Today we follow up with a closer look at the proposed floor plans and residential unit and amenity breakdown. Designed by JKRP Architects and developed by Bart Blatstein‘s Tower Investments, the building will rise 189 feet tall and span 238,090 square feet, which will be dedicated exclusively to residential space, services, and amenities, which include an outdoor swimming pool. The development will provide parking for a total of 64 cars (with 46 new spaces in addition to 16 existing ones) and 82 bicycles. Despite its adjacency to the Temple campus, the development will cater to the general populace rather than exclusively to university students. In total, the development will offer 25 studios, 181 one-bedroom apartments, and 39 two-bedroom residences.
