2301 John F. Kennedy Boulevard Set For Construction in Center City West

At number 28 on Philly YIMBY’s December Development Rundown is the curvy mixed-use tower proposed at 303-foot-tall, 22-story 2301 John F. Kennedy Boulevard in Center City West (alternately Logan Square). Developed by PMC Property Group, which is responsible for several developments in the area and designed by Gensler, the building will rise on a vacant lot to the north of the iconic PECO Building. The triangular lot is an improbable location for a high-rise, especially one that will make a noticeable impact on the Philadelphia skyline, as it is located between the elevated John F. Kennedy Boulevard and the elevated rail line. The building will be primarily residential with some office space on the lower floors.
