Potential Development Site Sits Dormant at 1222 Vine Street in Chinatown, Center City

A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has noted no signs of new development at a pair of parking lots spanning nearly two entire city blocks at 1222 Vine Street in Chinatown, Center City, just north of the Convention Center, held by the Parkway Corporation as a potential development site. Parkway is notable for holding and operating parking lots throughout the city and beyond and, when a favorable opportunity arises, redeveloping them, whether on their own or with a partner. The case at 1222 Vine Street appears to be the latter, as the site is listed on Parkway’s “opportunities” page. The combined site spans somewhere between 52,728 to 62,840 square feet and, under its CMX-4 zoning, may by right yield well over 600,000 square feet of development space it built to a floor-area-ratio of 12 to 1.

Still No Signs of Progress at Dormant Development Site at 709 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City

As expected, Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent visit to the site of an apparently dormant proposal for a 317-foot-tall, 27-story residential high-rise at 709 Chestnut Street (aka 709-13 Chestnut Street) in Market East, Center City revealed no signs of new construction. The site is located on the north side of the block between South 7th and South 8th streets, a block west of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The project is a development by the Parkway Corporation, a company that specializes in operating parking lots (such as the one at 709 Chestnut Street) while looking for opportunities to redevelop said lots into residential and/or commercial properties, either on their own or in partnership with other developers. The latest iteration for the site at hand was designed by Edry McHenry Architects and had Roseland Properties attached as a co-developer, and was slated to offer 278 residential units.

Cladding Rises Nearly Halfway Up at 2222 Market Street in Center City West

Cladding rises nearly halfway up on the newest office tower in Philadelphia, which is currently under construction at 2222 Market Street in Center City West. The building rises 295 feet and 20 stories tall, situated in an area that will soon become a new development hub, near the Schuylkill River. The project was designed by Gensler, which is also behind several other new projects in the vicinity, and developed by Parkway Commercial Properties, which owns several parking lots around the city which it redevelops when the opportunity arises. The tower at 2222 Market Street is slated to become the new headquarters for law firm Morgan, Lewis, Bockius LLP.
