The east side of Center City is on the verge of a transformation, where a new project is elevating the vertical profile of the dense Market East neighborhood. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec and developed by National Real Estate Development, the Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street officially stands 372 feet and 23 stories tall since it was topped out in February. In this publication, Philadelphia YIMBY takes a look at the latest construction progress.
The next entry in Philadelphia YIMBY’s ongoing “category spotlight” series, which looks at some of the new article categories we introduced at the start of the year, is the tag that tallies ongoing residential developments with four to nine residential units. This category mostly covers smaller developments that generally rise three to five stories tall. A number of such buildings boutique condominium properties where larger-than-average units result in structures that are rather imposing despite their relatively low unit counts. Please see below for a few such projects that we have covered this year so far.
At the start of the year, Philly YIMBY announced that partial permits were filed for Village Square on Haverford, a multi-family development at 3611 Haverford Avenue in Mantua, West Philadelphia. Today we look at the renderings for the 166-unit multi-family development that will span several adjacent sites on two blocks bordered by Haverford Avenue to the south, Wallace Street to the north, North 36th Street to the east, and North 39th Street to the west. Designed by WRT and developed by Lomax Real Estate Partners and the Mount Vernon Community Development Corporation, the project will consist of several buildings ranging from three to six stories and will offer retail, a mix of rental and condominium units, green promenades, and public art.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a mixed-use building at 4550 Mitchell Street in Roxborough, Northwest Philadelphia. Designed by Coscia Moos Architecture, the new building will rise four stories tall, with a commercial space on the ground floor and 38 apartments. The development will span 41,942 square feet and will include 16 bicycle spaces and a roof deck with a green roof, which will be accessible through two bulkheads. Construction costs are estimated at $3.2 million.
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.
