Earlier this month, Philly YIMBY shared details on amenities at The Luxe Phase I, a six-story, 96-unit rental project nearing completion at 1705 North American Street in Norris Square; today we take a closer look at the apartments themselves, which will range from studios to three-bedrooms. Listed under a full address of 1705-41 North American Street and alternatively called The Luxe Fishtown (the project website describes the neighborhood as Fishtown West), the structure spans a through-block lot that extends from North American Street to the west to North Philip Street to the east. Designed by the Atrium Design Group and Stantec, the building will span 95,000 square feet and will feature around 9,900 square feet of ground-floor retail, a roof deck, numerous amenities, and parking for 44 cars and 72 bicycles. Permits list Turn Key Realty as the contractor and indicate a construction cost of $15 million.
In September 2020, YIMBY reported that permits had been filed for a three-story single-family rowhouse at 2545 North Howard Street in West Kensington. Since that time, construction has been completed on the four-bedroom, three-bathroom project, and today we look at the end result. The structure replaces a vacant lot on the east side of the block between West Cumberland and West Huntingdon streets. According to permits, the building spans 2,000 square feet (though real estate listings list the property at 2,520 square feet, a figure that likely also includes the basement) and features a roof deck. Permit documents list Paul Dietz III as the architect and Gezim Kupa as the contractor.
In August 2020, YIMBY reported that permits had been filed for a three-story, single-family rowhouse at 187 West Norris Street in Norris Square. Since that time, construction has been completed on the project. The structure replaces a vacant lot on the north side of the block between West Hancock and Palethorp streets. Designed by RKM Architects, the building spans 3,105 square feet (as per the permit) and features three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a basement, and a roof deck. Permits list Point Builders Design Concepts as the contractor.
In September 2020, YIMBY reported that permits had been filed for a three-story two-family rowhouse at 142 West Huntingdon Street in West Kensington. Since then, construction has been completed on the development. The structure replaces a vacant lot on the south side of the block between North Howard and North Mascher streets. Designed by Plato Marinakos of Plato Studio, the building spans 3,267 square feet and features a roof deck. Permits list V2 Properties as the contractor.
Last month, Philly YIMBY reported that a permit had been issued for the University of Pennsylvania’s Amy Gutmann Hall at 3317-23 Chestnut Street in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed by Lake Flato Architects, with KSS Architects as the architect of record and Ground Control Collaborative as landscape designer, the building will rise six stories and span 115,954 square feet, and will feature classrooms, collaborative spaces for student projects, and a data science hub. While our previous reports on Amy Gutmann Hall focused on its exterior appearance, today we offer a glimpse into the interior of the proposed facility, and share several site plans not seen on YIMBY previously.
