Center City West is seeing a surge in construction, where one of the more notable developments is an overbuild proposed at 2300-24 Market Street. The original iteration was designed by Tantillo Architecture, with Lubert-Adler as the developer. The architect behind the latest design is KieranTimberlake, and Breakthrough Properties is the developer. The building was originally planned at 202 feet and 14 stories tall, but now the plans show a slightly shorter, nine-story structure. In a city meeting, four slides were presented showcasing diagrams and three new renderings of the new, distinctive design.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, four-unit multi-family building at 1107 North 41st Street in East Parkside, West Philadelphia. A roof deck will be located at the top of the structure. In total, the building will hold 4,769 square feet of space, and cost an estimated $600,000 to build.
The Market East neighborhood of Center City is currently a hotspot for construction, with the Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street as one of its most significant projects. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec and developed by Jefferson Health and National Real Estate Development, the structure stands 372 feet and 23 stories tall and will features a stunning undulating facade, Jefferson signage near the pinnacle, and a small park to the west. The large building will be a prominent addition to the neighborhood with a refreshing design.
The construction crane is currently being dismantled at The Laurel Rittenhouse. The skyscraper, located at 1911 Walnut Street in Rittenhouse Square, Center City, stands 604 feet and 48 floors tall. Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and developed by the Southern Land Company, the project features 185 rental units and 64 condominiums, along with amenity space and retail. According to the developer, the tower is already 50 percent sold out.
