A few weeks ago, we introduced a four-story, 166-unit development proposed at 1201 West Girard Avenue in Yorktown, North Philadelphia. Today, we take an in-depth look at the details of Landmark Architectural Design LLC’s approximately 60-foot-tall, 46,071-square-foot development, as well as what the process behind the design reveals about the strengths and inadequacies of current architecture and urban planning in Philadelphia.

The Northern Liberties neighborhood of North Philadelphia is seeing a massive surge in residential development. A 188-foot-tall, 14-story high-rise proposed at 1021 North Hancock Street will join a cluster of large buildings in progress in the surrounding area. Despite its relatively modest height, the 231,650-square-foot building will hold 280 residential units, making a massive impact on the area. The development will also feature retail space on the first floor. The building is designed by Philadelphia-based DIGSAU and redeveloped by Post Brothers, which is responsible for the gigantic Piazza Terminal under construction project a block to the north.
