The large crane that was attached to the south side of Arthaus at 311 South Broad Street in Center City has been removed from the structure. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Dranoff Properties, the 47-story tower stands 542 feet high and will have 108 condominium units, with leasing already underway. The tower has grown into the skyline over the past year and is looking close to completion.
Washington Square West
The small commercial structure that stood at 1101 Walnut Street in Washington Square West, Center City, has been completely demolished to make way for a new residential tower. The proposal is bold for the area, as the tower is planned to stand 259 feet and 23 stories tall. Designed by JKRP Architects and developed by LD Investment Partners LLC, and Ernest Bock and Sons Inc, the tower will feature 111 units and will feature an exterior with a mix of concrete, metal, and glass.
Shortly after the tour of the 18th floor of Arthaus featuring completed units, Philadelphia YIMBY went on another excursion that looked at the fantastic views from the skyscraper. The 542-foot-tall, 108-unit condominium tower is located at 311 South Broad Street in the Washington Square West neighborhood of Center City, directly to the east of the Kimmel Center. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Dranoff Properties, the 47-story building features bright, high-quality exterior materials and open and luxurious interiors.
Demolition work has been finished at 204 South 12th Street in Washington Square West, Center City, and a recent site visit observed an uptick in activity after a period of pause. Designed by BLT Architects, the tower will rise 32 stories tall and make a meaningful impact on the Philadelphia skyline. The development will hold 448 residential units, occupying 340,253 square feet of space and bringing significant density to the property. The project will also include 39,999 square feet of retail space, creating a significant commercial presence on 12th Street, and 68 underground parking spaces in a 41,380-square-foot garage.
Site prep activity has been spotted at 316-20 South 11th Street in Washington Square West, Center City. Nine townhomes are expected at the site. The project involves the demolition of an existing three-story parking garage. Demolition permits were issued in late January, so progress has been relatively slow since that time.
