Philadelphia YIMBY is launching its first annual December Development Countdown of the 31 tallest buildings proposed or under construction in Philadelphia. Number 31 on the list is 20th+Arch, a 260-foot-tall, 15-story office building planned at 2000 Arch Street in Center City West (alternatively in Logan Square). Developed by Parkway Commercial Properties (aka the Parkway Corporation) and designed by L2P Architects, the building will offer roughly 400,000 square feet of office space. No construction work has yet taken place.
A zoning permit has been filed for the construction of a multi-family structure at 5127 Duffield Street in Frankford, Northeast Philadelphia. The property sits on the east side of the block located between Dyre Street and Pratt Street. The building will span a 9,433-square-foot footprint and will rise to a height not exceeding 38 feet. No floor count has been specified, though it is likely to rise for stories as the permit calls for balconies at the fourth floor. Gateway Court LP is the listed owner.
Permits have been filed for the demolition of a vacant two-story prewar rowhouse at 275 South 62nd Street in Cobbs Creek, West Philadelphia. The former single-family dwelling is located at the southeast corner of South 62nd Street and Irving Street and will be torn down as part of the City of Philadelphia Demolition Program at a cost of $17,777. Do Hong is the listed owner. Pedro Palmer Construction Inc. is the listed contractor.
Construction is making rapid progress at Piazza Terminal, a multi-building, mixed-use complex at 1075 Germantown Avenue in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that a number of structures have risen several stories high at the 4.4-acre lot. Designed by BKV Group and developed by Post Brothers, the complex will offer 1,166,980 square feet and 1,144 residential units as well as a public promenade, retail, and parking. The tallest building will stand 16 stories and around 180 feet tall, with two more standing 12 stories tall.
