An updated design has been revealed for 6134-46 Wayne Avenue, a development proposed in Morton, Northwest Philadelphia. Designed by ALMA Architecture, the complex includes the mixture of townhouses and multi-family apartment buildings, all situated next to SEPTA’s Tulpehocken regional rail station. Upon completion, 78 residential units will be included in the development, with 60 in the multi-family building, and the remaining 18 in the two-family townhomes. The project also includes 24 parking spaces and 6,840 square feet of amenity space, with the latter located within the multi-family building.
A 23-townhouse complex has been proposed at 209-211 Delmar Street in Manayunk, Northwest Philadelphia. Designed by Alma Architecture, the development combines the city’s traditional rowhouses with a courtyard typology as a solution for the deep-set, sloped site, as illustrated in the firm’s recent Civic Design Review submission. The design is a novel adaptation to a challenging site in Northwest Philadelphia’s hilly terrain, which contrasts with the generally flat city.
