The CHOP Hub for Clinical Collaboration at 3501 Civic Center Boulevard is starting to look like the projected renderings as facade work is making steady progress. Located in in University City, West Philadelphia, the massive structure is the first phase of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s expansion plan and is being built at a cost of $4 billion. Designed by Perkins+Will, the structure now stands at its final height of 377 feet and 19 stories.
Renderings have been revealed for The Marquis, a 274-unit mixed-use development at 27 South 3rd Street in Easton, PA, a city located in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area. Designed by Bernardon, the building will rise seven stories tall, with a total of 403,685 square feet of space, including 6,192 square feet of retail space on the ground floor along 3rd Street. The apartments will feature 59 studios, 115 one-bedrooms, and 95 two-bedroom units. Five live/work units will also be included in the project, as well as 302 parking spaces.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, four-unit multi-family building at 4251 Sansom Street in Spruce Hill, West Philadelphia. The structure will replace an ornate two-story prewar rowhouse located on the north side of the block between South 42nd and South 43rd streets. The new building will rise from a 1,780-square-foot footprint, will contain 5,613 square feet of interior space, translating to a spacious 1,403 square feet per apartment, and will feature full sprinkling. Permits list Charnelle Hicks as the owner, Kevin Korejko as the design professional, and Northeast Builders LLC as the contractor.
Renderings have been revealed for Chelten Terminal, a 45-unit mixed-use development set to rise at 234 West Chelten Avenue in Germantown, Northwest Philadelphia. Designed by Ambit Architecture and developed by the Argo Property Group, the building will rise four stories tall, with a commercial space located on the ground floor and residential units above. The project will also include 36 parking spaces.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, three-unit multi-family building at 2216 North Marshall Street in North Philadelphia East. The structure will replace a vacant lot on the west side of the block between West Susquehanna Avenue and Germantown Avenue, next to a similar building planned at 2218 North Marshall Street. The structure will span an 849-square-foot footprint and will feature 2,572 square feet of interior space, translating to around 857 square feet per apartment. The development will include a cellar and a roof deck, which will offer skyline views in most directions thanks to the structure’s generally unobstructed sightlines. Permits list 3637 Realty LLC as the owner, Christopher Menna as the design professional, and JPL Construction as the contractor. The design professional and the contractor match those at the building planned next door, indicating that they may be part of the same development initiative. Construction costs are estimated at $180,000.
