In an encore to our Piazza Terminal tour last month, Philly YIMBY recently visited another property developed by Post Brothers, a nearly complete, 10-story, 285-unit residential complex dubbed The Poplar, located at 900 North 9th Street in Poplar, North Philadelphia. The factory loft has been standing since 1918, and a renovation has been in progress since the developer acquired the property in 2017. The renovation by Cosica Moos Architecture will yield luxury apartments and interiors, while the exterior now features a new shade of blue. The building also has expansive amenity spaces, including a roof deck that features swimming pools and an incredible view of the skyline. Today we invite our readers to join us on a tour of the latest luxury apartment addition to North Philly.
