Earlier this month, YIMBY shared an extensive publication covering 1600 North Broad Street (alternately 1406 Cecil B. Moore Avenue), a 15-story, 245-unit residential development slated to rise across from the Temple University campus in North Philadelphia. Today we follow up with a closer look at the proposed floor plans and residential unit and amenity breakdown. Designed by JKRP Architects and developed by Bart Blatstein‘s Tower Investments, the building will rise 189 feet tall and span 238,090 square feet, which will be dedicated exclusively to residential space, services, and amenities, which include an outdoor swimming pool. The development will provide parking for a total of 64 cars (with 46 new spaces in addition to 16 existing ones) and 82 bicycles. Despite its adjacency to the Temple campus, the development will cater to the general populace rather than exclusively to university students. In total, the development will offer 25 studios, 181 one-bedroom apartments, and 39 two-bedroom residences.
A three-story, nine-unit mixed-use building has been proposed at 1700 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown. The development will stand on the northwest corner of Frankford Avenue and East Columbia Avenue. Designed by Ambit Architecture, the structure will span 13,924 square feet and will include ground-floor commercial space and a basement. Permits list GRIT Construction as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $2.175 million.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a seven-story, 78-unit mixed-use development at 1000-10 North Delaware Avenue in Fishtown. The new building will replace a parking lot situated on a block bound by North Delaware Avenue to the southeast, Frankford Avenue to the west, East Allen Street to the north, and Sarah Street to the east. Designed by CANNOdesign and developed by the Archive Development, the building will span 69,160 square feet, which will include 4,374 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. Residential amenities will include elevator service, a roof deck, and parking for 26 bicycles. Permits list the Tester Construction Group as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $12.95 million.
Last month, YIMBY introduced 1600 North Broad Street (alternately 1406 Cecil B. Moore Avenue), a 15-story, 245-unit residential development proposed across from the Temple University campus in North Philadelphia; today we take a closer look at information and imagery regarding the project. Designed by JKRP Architects, the structure will rise 189 feet tall, making a significant contribution to the local skyline, and span 238,090 square feet. The project is developed by Bart Blatstein‘s Tower Investments, which also developed the Edge and Avenue North buildings adjacent on either side of the new proposal. A total of 46 parking spaces will be added to the 16 that will be preserved at the site, and 82 bicycle parking spaces will be introduced. Despite its adjacency to the Temple campus, the development will cater to the general populace rather than exclusively to university students.
A three-story, 12-unit residential development is set to be constructed at 3900 Aspen Street in Mantua, West Philadelphia. The attached structure will replace a vacant lot situated on the southwest corner of Aspen and North 39th streets. Designed by Haverford Square Designs, the structure will span 5,600 square feet and will feature a basement and a private roof deck. Permits list ATG Construction as the contractor and specify a construction cost of $300,000.
