Construction is progressing at Ludlow 43 at 12-14 South 43rd Street in Spruce Hill, West Philadelphia. The building will rise six stories and 76 feet tall, making it one of the larger buildings in the area. In total, 18 residential units will be included within the building, with eight one-bedrooms, five two-bedroom, three three-bedroom, and two four-bedroom apartments. Also included in the development will be five parking spaces, a fitness center, and a roof deck.
Structural framing continues to progress at the Drexel College of Nursing and Health Professions, a high-rise building that is a part of the 14-acre uCity Square development in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed by Ballinger and developed by Wexford Science and Technology LLC, the tower will rise 12 stories and 185 feet tall. The building will yield 174,000 square feet of space and will feature a combination of office and classroom space and will help extend Drexel University’s campus farther west.

A recently submitted Civic Design Review document has revealed a series of new renderings and diagrams for the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center parking garage proposed at 3800 Powelton Avenue in University City, West Philadelphia. Designed and engineered by Pennoni (a coincidentally fitting firm name for a Penn Presbyterian Medical Center project) and THA Consulting, the structure will rise eight stories tall and will feature nine levels of parking, including rooftop space and will provide nearly 1,500 parking spaces, almost tripling the current amount of parking at the site. The project will feature ground-level retail facing Powelton Avenue and a new green space at the south end of the site.
New renderings have been released for 300 North Columbus Boulevard via a Civic Design Review submission, giving an updated look at the high-rise that will stand just to the north of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. The structure will rise 28 stories and 316 feet tall, and will be located on the north side of the Old City neighborhood, near the boundary of Center City and Northern Liberties to the north, where several projects underway and many proposals have been revealed. The building was designed by Handel Architects, which had also designed the 805-foot Madison House at 15 East 30th Street in New York City. The project is being developed by The Durst Organization, which is also developing the massive Penn’s Landing Redevelopment just to the south of the Ben Franklin Bridge.
