Topping-out is rapidly approaching at One Dock Street, a 364-foot-tall, 31-story high-rise under construction in the Society Hill section of Old City in Center City. Designed by BLT Architects and developed by LCOR Incorporated, the tower rises near the Delaware River waterfront and close to architect I.M. Pei‘s similarly-scaled Society Hill Towers; upon completion, One Dock Street will stand as the most significant contribution to the local skyline in half a century. The structure will span over 300,000 square feet of interior space and feature 272 rental units. Permits list Hunter Roberts Holdings LLC as the contractor and a construction cost of $66.55 million.
A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed that construction is complete at a four-story, five-unit building at 1507 Christian Street, a multi-family development rising in Graduate Hospital, South Philadelphia. The development stands on the north side of the block between South 15th and South 16th streets. Designed by Gnome Architects and developed by Zatos Investments (which also serves as the contractor), the structure spans 6,168 square feet and features a roof deck. Permits list a construction cost of $375,000.
A recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has captured the completed exterior of Riverwalk South, a 362-foot-tall, 32-story high-rise under construction at 60 North 23rd Street in Center City West. Designed by Gensler and developed by the PMC Property Group, the building stands next to the Schuylkill River and is part of the two-towered Riverwalk complex. The development is part of a new hub of high-rise buildings underway along and near Market Street.
As we anticipated (since construction permits still had not been filed), Philly YHIMBY’s recent site visit has found no signs of development at Mural West, a 363-foot-tall mixed-use tower proposed at 523 North Broad Street in Poplar, Lower North Philadelphia. Designed by Atkin Olshin Schade Architects and developed by Precision Realty Group, the project will provide office, retail, and commercial/medical space, as well as more than 200 residential units. The project will also include public plaza next to the eponymous mural, which is painted on the adjacent Mural Lofts residential building, as well as amenities such as a roof deck with potential restaurant space. If built, the tower will dramatically boost the skyline of Lower North Philadelphia and will stand as one of the tallest buildings north of Center City.
A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has revealed that excavation is well underway at a 366-foot-tall, 32-story residential tower proposed at 210 South 12th Street in Midtown Village, Center City.
