The tallest development in Center City is wrapping exterior construction outside while work continues inside. At 1911 Walnut Street, The Laurel Rittenhouse dominates the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood. Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and developed by Southern Land Company, the tower stands 604 feet and 48 stories tall, with a four-story podium to the north. The skyscraper will feature 185 rental units and 64 luxury condominiums, along with retail space, an Equinox gym, and amenity space in the podium and on the 27th floor.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a 15-unit multi-family development located at 646 North 32nd Street in Mantua, West Philadelphia. Upon completion, the new building will rise four stories tall, with an access structure leading to a roof deck.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a three-story, three-unit multi-family structure located at 2231 North 10th Street in North Philadelphia East.

A recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has r3evealed that construction has not yet begun at a six-story, 35-unit residential building at 2043-51 North Front Street in Fishtown, though permits were issued last October. Designed by CANNOdesign, the building will rise six stories tall and will feature commercial space on the ground floor and 35 bicycle spaces. Tester Construction is listed as the contractor.
Although a zoning permit was issued in November 2020, a recent site visit by Philadelphia YIMBY has revealed that construction has not yet started at a single-family dwelling proposed at 1326 Palethorp Street in Olde Kensington. The development is slated to replace a vacant lot on the west side of the block between West Thompson and Master streets, and will feature a roof deck. Detailed information on the project remains scarce, although permits list CANNOdesign as the contractor (which is likely a confusing word choice, as CANNOdesign is an architecture firm and the listing likely refers to it as an architectural contractor).
