Number 21 on Philly YIMBY’s December Development Countdown is 1153 Chestnut Street, a 329-foot-tall, 25-story residential tower proposed as part of the two-tower East Market Phase 3 development in Market East, Center City. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by National Real Estate Group, the building will rise on the west side of the complex and will feature a blocky yet eye-catching façade of metal, precast terracotta, and glass. The tower will have a total area of 250,000 square feet and it will include 396 units in what will be one of the tallest residential high-rises in the area. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that excavation nears completion.
A few days ago, SkyscraperPage user FairmountFellow revealed a pair of renderings showing a skyscraper situated atop an existing prewar building at 1826 Chestnut Street in Rittenhouse Square, Center City. The image, which the user allegedly “saw in a local cooperative presentation,” revealed no further information, yet various clues offer more details. The building shows a floor count of around 42 stories, and its location next to the recently proposed skyscraper at 113-121 South 19th Street suggest a height of roughly 550 feet. In the image corner is the partial logo of Goodman Properties, which has a page for the building on its website. It is unclear whether Goodman intends to develop the building as pictured or if it is a conceptual presentation geared to attract investors.
