Cathedral Place Phase Two Awaits Design Reveal in Logan Square, Center City

At number one on Philly YIMBY’s Annual December Countdown is Cathedral Place Phase Two, a 685-foot-tall tower planned at 1700 Vine Street in Logan Square, Center City. The skyscraper is part of Cathedral Place, a proposed redevelopment of the block-sized archdiocesan campus centered around the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, a block east of Logan Square. The development will also include a new 23-story high-rise. The taller tower will be designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz, though only a general massing is available at this point.
