PHILADELPHIA | SONO | 3 Towers | 137-280 FT

The Philadelphia high-rise proposal book continues, as Northern Liberties looks to pick up two more high-rises! According to this article, National Real Estate, which developed the massive East Market project plans on doing more of the same along the 2nd Street corridor to help bridge Northern Liberties to Old City. This will help begin to eliminate that horrible dead zone, as well as extend the skyline farther north. The first phase plans on adding two towers, with a 14-story tower at the southwestern corner of 2nd And Spring Garden. This building will house 355 residential units and 105 parking spots. The larger tower will be situated at 412 North 2nd Street, and will stand 23 floors and hold 397 residential units and 106 parking spots. Between the two projects, 752 residential units will be brought to the neighborhood here, which will be amazing towards helping improve what’s currently a horrible place to be. This also is the latest in NoLibs’ high-rise development. There are currently three tower under construction at Piazza Terminal. Two more are proposed at 501 Spring Garden and 1021 Hancock, and now these two, meaning that the neighborhood could have 7 high-rises in the next few years, a truly dramatic transformation.



Renderings from the Tuesday May 24 Zoning Committee Meeting


They look great! Can’t wait for more buildings and for construction!

More renderings are out for this project! Looks like it will include a really nice pedestrian-only retail corridor along American Street. Lots of public space will be coming to the area with this development, which will really help spark more development in the neighborhood. Also looks like there will be lots of nice public artwork.

200 Spring Garden-

Meanwhile, it already seems as if the area is starting to see more activity, although it is probably just a coincidence, but zoning permits have been issued for nearly 300 kore residential units in the area in the last few days alone-


Apparently, there is ANOTHER tower coming here according to a user on Skyscraperpage:
