Foundation work is underway for a residential building that was formerly planned at 1153 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City, as part of the East Market Phase 3 development. Developed by National Real Estate Development, the project is the latest phase of the East Market complex. The work is in progress on the west side of the project, where three stories of underground parking, capped with a public space, are currently planned, though the space may be replaced with a high-rise building in the future. The previous plan, designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, was proposed to stand at 329 feet and 24 stories tall, with an interesting terra cotta cladding.
Permits have been issued for the construction of a 22-unit mixed-use development at 2226-34 North Front Street in Norris Square, North Philadelphia. Upon completion, the new building will rise five stories and 55 feet high. A commercial space will be situated on the ground floor and green roof will be located at the pinnacle of the building. The green roof was included in the project to utilize a density bonus that will allow a higher number of residential units. Eight bicycle spaces will also be included in the project. In total, the building will hold 18,277 square feet of space, with construction costs estimated at $2,741,550.
Shortly after the tour of the 18th floor of Arthaus featuring completed units, Philadelphia YIMBY went on another excursion that looked at the fantastic views from the skyscraper. The 542-foot-tall, 108-unit condominium tower is located at 311 South Broad Street in the Washington Square West neighborhood of Center City, directly to the east of the Kimmel Center. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Dranoff Properties, the 47-story building features bright, high-quality exterior materials and open and luxurious interiors.
The 70-unit residential building proposed at 31 East Columbia Avenue in Fishtown, Kensington, is going before the Civic Design Review, meaning diagrams and details are available for public viewing.
