Philadelphia, PA

“Well designed and correct scale for Spring Garden Street, with high quality materials, sited correctly” —City of Philadelphia Civic Design Review

This mixed-use residential development occupies an entire block in the lively neighborhood of Northern Liberties, adding 373 units atop an expansive 60,000 sf ground-level retail podium. It enlivens nearly all the development’s available street frontages, creating a vital, urban addition to a rapidly developing Philadelphia corridor. With parking below grade and loading areas located along a private drive, the project creates a welcome, pedestrian-oriented destination for the neighborhood. A rooftop residential lounge flanked by two roof decks provides expansive interior and exterior spaces to complement the vibrancy of the street life below.

The building further stands apart with nearly 20,000 sf of interior and exterior amenities. Internally, a half-basketball court is flanked by a lounge and yoga studio, creating a central fitness area for residents that includes an option for pickleball. The upper-level interiors have various social and gaming lounges, co-working and a maker’s studio. A central brew pub creates a hub for tasting local beers on tap, and it’s available for private rentals. Two exterior decks provide a sun deck with toe-dip pool, fire-pit lounge, grilling stations, social dining areas, lawn area, sky bar, and dog run, all of which is surrounded by upscale materials, trellises, greenery, and expansive city views of both the Delaware River and Center City.
