A 14-story high-rise has been unveiled at 2300-2324 Market Street in Center City West. A new tower will rise as a vertical extension atop multiple preexisting structures, which will have their façades preserved. Designed by Tantillo Architecture and developed by the PMC Property Group, the development will add 200 new residential units in the overbuild to the 22 units in the existing buildings. A total of 173,218 square feet of residential space will take up the majority of the structure, as well as 39,855 square feet of office space and 12,048 square feet of space reserved for a future retail or restaurant tenant. The tower will stand around 187 feet tall to the roof, as shown on its Civic Design Review submission. Eight on-site parking spaces and 52 off-site parking spaces will also be included in the project.

A large proposal called The Standard at Philadelphia has been unveiled at 119 South 31st Street in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed by CUBE 3, the development will consist of a 219-foot-tall building standing 17 stories with two underground levels. The project went to the Civic Design Review but still remains somewhat mysterious because of the limited detail provided. No specific number of residential units has been provided, although it will likely be in the hundreds due to the size of the building. Additionally, the project will contain parking, although the number of spaces has also not been confirmed.
Arts + Crafts Holdings is proposing a seven-story residential development at 741 Spring Garden Street in Poplar, North Philadelphia. The complex will consist of a 99,114-square-foot building plus 10,405 square feet of covered ground-level parking and a 1,279-square-foot roof deck. The 146 units will range from studios to two bedrooms. JKRP Architects is the project designer.
Last month, YIMBY unveiled the UPS package sortation and distribution facility proposed at 1 Red Lion Road in Bustleton, Northeast Philadelphia. The 1,004,000-square-foot structure is currently the city’s largest single proposed building in terms of floor area. A few days ago, the development team of Commercial Development Company, Inc, Blue Rock, Bohler, and NORR submitted a revised Civic Design Review package, which shows design changes that deal mainly with landscaping at the 140-acre site and the way the facility will relate to the surrounding residential neighborhood.
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.
