A second tower crane has been recently erected at the site.

The structure will span over 378,000 square feet of total space, along with GIANT leasing nearly one-third of the building’s entire space for a grocery store on the lower levels, similar to Riverwalk. Residential space will take up over 268,000 square feet.

The project was designed by Cecil Baker, which is also behind two condo developments that have risen within the past four years, and developed by Brock Development Group. The development, located just to the north of Center City and three blocks to the southeast of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, rises from a masonry-walled pit where a freight train line once ran and was taken out in the 1970’s, with a tunnel remaining under several other blocks.
