At number 29 on Philly YIMBY’s December Development Rundown is the 290-foot-tall, 24-story building planned at 300 North Columbus Boulevard in Old City, on the Delaware River waterfront near the border of Northern Liberties. The tower was designed by Handel Architects and is developed by the Durst Organization, which recently won a bid to develop the gigantic Penn’s Landing Redevelopment a few blocks to the south. The 370,000-square foot building will bring 360 units to the neighborhood. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed no construction at the site, although there are signs that work may begin soon.
Construction is making rapid progress at Piazza Terminal, a multi-building, mixed-use complex at 1075 Germantown Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that a number of structures have risen several stories high at the 4.4-acre lot. Designed by BKV Group and developed by Post Brothers, the complex will offer 1,166,980 square feet and 1,144 residential units as well as a public promenade, retail, and parking. The tallest building will stand 16 stories and around 180 feet tall, with two more standing 12 stories tall.
Construction is underway at Piazza Terminal, a multi-building, mixed-use complex at 1075 Germantown Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. The complex will span 1,166,980 square feet of floor space, with slightly over half of the space (around 682,000 square feet) dedicated to 1,144 market-rate residential units. Much of the rest of the space will be dedicated to functions such as retail, which will cluster around a central public promenade. The project is being built by Post Brothers, a locally based developer with a headquarters immediately south of the site, and is designed by the BKV Group.
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.
Site clearance work appears to have started at 626 North Delaware Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. The parking lot has been shuttered and paving is partially broken up at the future site of a 198-foot-tall, 16-story residential building. The light-colored design by Cosica Moos Architects will create a bright presence and the 96 units will add density to the rapidly developing neighborhood.
