As we expected, a recent site visit by Philly YIMBY has revealed no construction progress at Broad + Pine at 337 South Broad Street (also known as 337-41 South Broad Street) in Washington Square West, Center City; more surprising is that demolition has also not yet begun, although permits have already been issued. After having already gone through several major design revisions over the past few years, the high-rise planned at the northeast corner of Broad and Pine Streets at, has recently seen yet another major redesign. Designed by My Arch and developed by Dranoff Properties (which is also behind the Arthaus tower half a block to the north), the proposal has been reduced in scale down from 28 to 15 stories, though its residential unit count has increased from 56 to 91 units.
Although permits had been issued last year, a recent visit by Philly YIMBY has discovered that construction has still not begun at the six-story, 453-unit apartment building proposed at 2621-67 Frankford Avenue in East Kensington. Designed by Harman Deutsch Ohler Architecture (also known as HDO Architecture), with Turn Key Realty LLC as the contractor, the structure will become one of the largest in the neighborhood, holding 412,703 square feet of space and costing at $72 million to build. The development will offer ample outdoor space for residents and will become a major anchor for the rapidly developing residential area.
Philly YIMBY recently visited the site of a long-stalled proposal for an office tower at 1301 Market Street in Market East, Center City, half a block to the east of City Hall. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and developed by the Oliver Tyrone Pulver Corporation, the building will yield over 700,000 square feet, with floor plates at the lower levels measuring over 25,000 square feet and those at the upper floors at over 17,000 square feet.
