Philadelphia YIMBY’s First Anniversary Countdown, which looks at the most frequently mentioned article categories over the course of the past year, briefly took a backseat to hot-off-the-presses content we shared with our readers. Today, we resume the series by looking at the 19th place in the countdown, which goes to North Philadelphia East, which has garnered 40 category mentions. To be more precise, this entry also includes North Central Philadelphia and North Philadelphia West, which have amassed 36 and 34 mentions, respectively. We are grouping all three in a single publication due to significant overlap between the categories.
The latest addition to the Temple University area skyline is The Nest, a 215-foot-tall, 17-story student housing building at 1324 North Broad Street in Cecil B. Moore, North Philadelphia. Designed by the Philadelphia-based Cecil Baker + Partners and developed by developed by Brock Development Group, the development is called The Nest and provides 192 units of student housing, which can accommodate up to 500 students. The first floor features retail space, while the second floor holds amenity space, a fitness center, lounges, and an outdoor terrace.
