253-Foot-Tall Residential Tower Proposed for 222 Walnut Street in Society Hill, Center City

Society Hill, one of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods in the city, has long resisted major development, particularly after it was designated as a historic district. Sporadic development that occurs throughout the neighborhood tends to be small-scale and low-rise. However, a planned 252-and-a-half-foot-tall, 18-story tower at 222 Walnut-Street will make the most dramatic impact upon the neighborhood skyline since I. M. Pei’s 31-story Society Hill Towers rose in 1964. Cecil Baker + Partners Architects is the designer for the new project.
