At number 28 on Philly YIMBY’s December 2020 Development Countdown is the curvy mixed-use tower proposed at 2301 John F. Kennedy Boulevard in Center City West (alternately Logan Square). Designed by Gensler and developed by PMC Property Group, which is responsible for several developments in the area, the 303-foot-tall, 22-story building will rise on a vacant lot to the north of the iconic PECO Building. The triangular lot is an improbable location for a high-rise, especially one that will make a noticeable impact on the Philadelphia skyline, as it is located between the elevated John F. Kennedy Boulevard and the elevated rail line. The building will be primarily residential with some office space on the lower floors.
Permits have been filed for the construction of a seven-story, 157-unit mixed-use building at 1101-33 South 9th Street in the Italian Market, South Philadelphia. Commercial space will be included in the ground floor, likely on South 9th Street, which is a major commercial corridor. Designed by BLT Architects, the building will hold 204,351 square feet of space. Accessory parking spaces will be included in the development . Construction costs are estimated at $52 million. Hunter Roberts Holdings LLC is listed as the contractor.

At number 29 on Philly YIMBY’s December 2020 Development Countdown is the 290-foot-tall, 24-story building planned at 300 North Columbus Boulevard in Old City, on the Delaware River waterfront near the border of Northern Liberties. The 370,000-square foot building will yield 360 units and is designed by Handel Architects and developed by the Durst Organization, which recently won a bid to develop the gigantic Penn’s Landing Redevelopment a few blocks to the south. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed no construction at the site, although there are signs that work may begin soon.
