In total, the building will hold 90,405 square feet of space and cost an estimated $13.79 million to build.
A rendering has been revealed for the 50-unit residential development at 901 Leland Street in Francisville, North Philadelphia, where construction work has recently started.

In total, the building will hold 46,792 square feet of space, and cost an estimated $5 million to build.
