Facade Nearly Finished at Riverwalk South at 60 North 23rd Street in Center City West

Facade work is nearly finished at Riverwalk South, a skyscraper that is under construction at 60 North 23rd Street in Center City West. The main portion of the structure is currently topped out at 32 stories, and the building will soon reach its full height of 362 feet. Designed by Gensler and developed by the PMC Property Group, the building, which stands next to the Schuylkill River, is part of the two-towered Riverwalk complex. The development is part of a new hub of high-rise buildings that will soon form a cluster along Market Street and near the river, with most projects featuring residential programming. The two new towers symbolize the new high-rise growth that is destined to dominate the area in the near future.

Looking at the Revised Design for Three-Story Vertical Extension Proposed at 223-25 Market Street in Old City

Last month, Philly YIMBY shared that permits were issued for a three-story vertical extension for an existing three-story building located at 223-25 Market Street in the Old City section of Center City. Designed by the Atrium Design Group, the new addition will roughly double the building’s current floor area to 23,685 square feet and increase the total residential unit count to 22, while maintaining the ground-floor commercial space facing Market Street. Permits list TBC LLC as the contractor and a construction cost of $3.5 million. Our original report discussed the proposal’s prior design, which was clad in dark panels that were quite out of context with the surrounding historic district.
