The second phase of the 16-story Hamilton at 1500 Hamilton Street nears topping out, as its steel superstructure has risen above its 147-foot, ten-story neighbor that opened last year. The two buildings were designed by Bower Lewis Thrower Architects and developed by Radnor Property Group and the Community College of Philadelphia The complex sits across from the CBS 3 Eyewitness News Building, a block west of North Broad Street, in a development hotspot where several major projects are currently under planning.
Permits have been filed for the construction of a four-story multi-family structure at 871 North 20th Street in Fairmount, North Philadelphia. The building will include a cellar and three residential condominiums. Each unit will have access to a rooftop deck that will offer sweeping views of the Philadelphia skyline, since the building will rise above the adjacent three-story rowhouses. RDM Construction LLC is listed as the contractor for the project. Construction costs are estimated at $241,000.
Permits have been filed for the construction of a four-story, mixed use structure at 5312-18 Ridge Avenue in the Manayunk neighborhood in Northwest Philadelphia. The building will span a 15,753-square-foot footprint, hold 33,544 square feet of floor area, and contain 36 residential units. The ground floor will feature two commercial spaces, one of which will be occupied by a fresh food market. The address currently houses a one floor industrial building, which will need to be demolished in order for construction to move forward on the project. Klein & Company Plumbing INC will be the contractor for the project. Construction costs are estimated at $5 million.
While the Market East district of Center City is seeing a surge in high-rise proposals, development is also taking place on smaller properties around the neighborhood. At 1208 Chestnut Street, a nine-story building will replace the Rainbow Apparel building that has sat empty for years. Michael Alhadad is the developer behind the 49 unit-structure, which will reach a height of 122 feet. The building will be very thin but the thinnest faces of the building will stretch out from Chestnut Street to Sansom Street.
