The 4th place on Philly YIMBY’s December 2021 Development Countdown goes to 1826 Chestnut Street in Rittenhouse Square, Center City. News of the apparently conceptual proposal come from SkyscraperPage user Fairmount Fellow, who spotted proposal images in a presentation they were privy to. No permits have yet been filed, yet images show a floor count of around 42 stories, and its location next to the recently proposed skyscraper at 113-121 South 19th Street suggests a height of around 550 feet. The images include a 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 intended to attract investors or development partners.
