Last month, Philly YIMBY shared our latest exterior photos of Standard At Philadelphia, a 209-foot-tall, 19-story residential high-rise recently completed at 119 South 31st Street in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed by CUBE 3 and developed by Landmark Properties, the 362,117-square-foot building rises from a narrow, through-block lot stretching between South 30th and South 31st streets. The Standard offers 280 residential units ranging from studios to six-bedroom apartments geared toward university students and available for rent on a per-person/per-bed basis. Today we look at various unit layouts available within the development.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, three-unit rowhouse at 2442 North Marshall Street in North Philadelphia East. The new building will rise from a vacant lot located on the west side of the block between West York Street and West Cumberland Street. Designed by JT Ran Expediting, the structure will span 3,669 square feet (with an average of over 1,200 square feet per apartment) and will feature a basement and a roof deck. Permits list JPL Construction as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $280,000, of which $40,000 is allocated toward construction.
The North Philadelphia skyline is about to transform in a significant way thanks to The Legacy on Broad, a 329-foot, 28-story-tall high-rise proposed at 1518-28 North Broad Street next to the Temple University campus. Designed by Cube 3 Studio and developed by Landmark Properties, the tower will surpass Temple’s nearby 302-foot-tall, 28-story Morgan Hall North at 1601 North Broad Street to become the tallest building in North Central Philadelphia. The development will span 360,798 square feet and offer 289 residential units, comprised of 147 group living units and 142 multi-family apartments. The residences will be geared primarily to university students and will hold a total of 868 beds. The project will also include over 21,079 square feet of ground-floor retail space, parking for 78 cars and 100 bicycles, and over 6,000 square feet of outdoor public space.
Renderings have been revealed for a massive new multi-family development called The Mark, located at 3615 Chestnut Street in University City, West Philadelphia. Upon completion, the building will officially stand 34 stories tall, though a mechanical penthouse at the top will stretch the height higher, to just over 400 feet tall, a very sizable addition to this location. Designed by BKV Group and developed by Landmark Properties, the tower will hold 363 residential units, with 236 standard units and 127 group living units. Accessed from Ludlow Street, the development will hold space for 70 cars and 96 bicycles.
A few days ago, Philly YIMBY shared a construction update for The Standard At Philadelphia, a 209-foot-tall, 19-story residential tower under construction at 119 South 31st Street in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed by CUBE 3 and developed by Landmark Properties, the 362,117-square-foot structure will rise from a narrow, through-block lot stretching between South 30th and South 31st streets, and will house 280 residential units geared toward university students. Our recent visit has revealed that on-site demolition has been completed and foundation work is currently in progress. Today we share another look at the construction progress and how it affects the unusual and varied conditions that flank the site on three sides.
