Construction is progressing at a three-story mixed-use building at 1208 North 29th Street in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia. The building will offer a ground floor retail space and six residential units. CANNOdesign is the architect and Grit Construction is the contractor. Mountain Rock LLC is the listed owner.
The massive Penn’s Landing Redevelopment project will dramatically transform the Delaware River waterfront south of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Developed by The Durst Organization, the complex will create over 3.6 million square feet of floor space, as well as a 11.5-acre public park. The $2.2 billion project will add 1,834 residential units and a significant amount of office space, while expanding the Center City skyline to the east and likely inviting high-rise growth in the gap between the waterfront and the skyline core.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a six-story, 50-unit multi-family development at 370 West Johnson Street in Morton, Northwest Philadelphia. A parking garage will be located on the ground floor. A green roof will be situated at the top of the building. The structure will hold 50,218 square feet of space and cost an estimated $4 million to build.
Permits have been issued construction of a 23-unit multi-family extension at 4077-83 Lancaster Avenue in Belmont, West Philadelphia. The project will include a two-story addition above the existing single-story retail structure. Eight bicycle spaces will be included in the development. The building will yield 27,792 square feet of space upon the completion of the 17,160-square-foot addition.
Shortly after the completion of the first Cira Centre skyscraper in 2005, plans were revealed for a second tower at a nearby site. The 725-foot-tall, 48-story high-rise was shown as part of a model of the greater complex, around the time of the groundbreaking of the FMC Tower nearby to the south. The project was designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architecture and planned for development by Brandywine Realty Trust, a team that is also behind the original Cira Centre as well as the Evo and FMC Tower at Cira Centre South, a group of buildings that has transformed the University City skyline.
