371,000 sf

Number Of Units


This new, ground up, 445,000 sf multi-family, mixed-use building in Center City is currently under construction. This 20-story tower will feature 399 residential units, 11,300 sf of ground floor commercial space, 94 underground parking spots, 138 bicycle stalls, and two roof decks.

The tower will rest on a two-story podium clad in dark grey brick. The upper facade will consist of dark metal paneling and metal-flecked paneling with a color inspired by the neighborhood’s red brick buildings.

The residential entrance will be located in the middle of the building on Sansom St. The loading area and garage ramp will be located on the eastern side of the building along Sansom St. The current curb cut along 12th St. will be eliminated, which should help make 12th St. safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. The 12th St. frontage on the new building will consist entirely of retail windows and entrances.
