Philadelphia YIMBY Looks at Upcoming Projects With 10 to 50 Residential Units

Philadelphia YIMBY continues its “category spotlight” series, which looks at some of the new article categories we introduced at the start of the year. In the third entry of this mini-series, we look at new residential developments that we have covered so far this year that feature anywhere between 10 to 49 residential units. In general, the category consists of medium-sized apartment buildings that rise anywhere from three to five stories and some townhouse complexes, although there are a few exceptions, such as a very notable one at the Freeman Auction House overbuild. For more details on this proposal, as well as a selection of several others, please scroll below.

Philadelphia YIMBY Highlights Upcoming Developments With 50 to 100 Residential Units

Yesterday, Philadelphia YIMBY discussed some of the new categories we introduced at the beginning of the year to make our website into a more useful resource of both recent news and as an urban development archive, highlighting a few of the new projects we have covered within the 100-plus-unit category. In this second entry in our category spotlight series, we look at a few of the residential developments with unit counts ranging from 50 to 99. This category consists mostly of sizable mid-rise developments, as well as a few high-rise buildings that tend to fall withing the under-20-story range. Please see below for a selection of such developments that we have covered so far this year.

Construction Underway at Edelman Fossil Park and Museum in Mantua Township, NJ

One of the most exciting new developments in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area is currently underway not in the city itself, but rather in an exurban part of Mantua Township, New Jersey, 14 miles to the south of Center City Philadelphia. Designed by Ennead Architects, with KSS Architects as the architect of record and Gallagher & Associates behind exhibit design, Rowan University’s Jean & Ric Edelman Fossil Park and Museum rises from a scenic bluff overlooking a former marl quarry, which holds 66-million-year-old fossils dating to the age of dinosaurs. The $73 million visitor center, avant-garde in design yet naturalistic in material palette and setting, will offer 44,000 square feet of interactive exhibits, presentation space, socializing areas, and more.
