Designed by Ambit Architecture and developed by Philly Capital Group, the 14,560-square-foot building stands at the east side of the traffic circle at the intersection of Frankford Avenue, Trenton Avenue, and East York Street, which gains its distinctive “flatiron” shape from its acutely angled site. The development will feature ground-floor commercial space (primarily along Frankford Avenue), a basement, full sprinkling, balconies, and a green roof covering at least 60 percent of the rooftop. Permits list GRIT Construction as the contractor and a construction cost of $2.05 million.
