The Society Hill Towers in the Society Hill neighborhood of Center City used to stand alone in the local skyline until now, when a new residential tower is rising next door. At the corner of Dock Street and South Front Street, One Dock Street is currently under construction, which will stand 372 feet and 31 stories tall. Designed by Bower Lewis Thower Architects and developed by LCOR Incorporated, the rental apartment tower will feature 272 units and rise just over the height of the parapets of the Society Hill Towers.

Despite opposition from preservationists, the long-awaited tower at One Dock Street is underway in Society Hill, Center City. The apartment building will stand 372 feet tall and 31 stories. Designed by Philadelphia-based BLT Architects and developed by LCOR Incorporated, the slim yet sizeable tower will feature 272 rental apartments and will connect to the Marriott Hotel adjacent to the site. The high-rise will join architect I. M. Pei’s three Society Hill Towers that have dominated the area since 1964.
In the Market East section of Center City, a group of new developments will form a noticeable skyline cluster.

The tower, which will feature a whopping 412 rental units along with amenity space, rises close to the Jefferson Health campus.
