In an encore to our Piazza Terminal tour last month, Philly YIMBY recently visited another property developed by Post Brothers, a nearly complete, 10-story, 285-unit residential complex dubbed The Poplar, located at 900 North 9th Street in Poplar, North Philadelphia. The factory loft has been standing since 1918, and a renovation has been in progress since the developer acquired the property in 2017. The renovation by Cosica Moos Architecture will yield luxury apartments and interiors, while the exterior now features a new shade of blue. The building also has expansive amenity spaces, including a roof deck that features swimming pools and an incredible view of the skyline. Today we invite our readers to join us on a tour of the latest luxury apartment addition to North Philly.
Construction work has nearly wrapped up at The Poplar at 900 North 9th Street in Poplar, North Philadelphia, converting the prewar structure into residential space. Formerly known as the Quaker Building, the structure stands 11 stories tall next to the elevated SEPTA regional rail rail line, and was completed in 1918 as a factory loft. The 285-unit conversion project has been designed by Cosica Moos Architecture and developed by the Post Brothers, which is also responsible for the massive Piazza Terminal project in Northern Liberties.
Completion approaches at The Poplar, a renovation project in progress at 900 North 9th Street in Poplar, North Philadelphia. Designed by Cosica Moos Architecture, which is responsible for exterior as well as interior design, and developed by the Post Brothers, the 400,000-square-foot project transforms the 11-story Quaker Building, a factory loft built in 1918, into a 285-unit residential building. The redevelopment adds a striking new color to the exterior, a rooftop amenity deck, and units that come in multiple sizes.
