New plans call for 32-story tower at Boyd Theater site



Quote:
Pearl Properties has revised its plans for redeveloping the site of the Boyd Theater, which was demolished this year after a long preservation battle.

The developers’ original design — which was panned in the Inquirer as “a charmless, bulky stack of rentable units” — was rejected by the Historical Commission’s architecture committee in May. Pearl kept Eimer Design, the original architects, to work on the design for some structures surrounding the Boyd site, which the architecture committee approved in July.

[...]

The latest plans call for a 32-story tower with 250 apartments, 50,000 square feet of retail space, and 117 underground parking spaces. (The original design called for a building 27 stories tall.) The residential entrance to the property would face 19th Street, while the parking and loading entrances face 20th Street. Commercial uses would line the Chestnut Street and Sansom Street frontages of the project.

The project sailed through Civic Design Review with mostly positive comments, according to Planning Commission staff members. In his required letter to the Department of Licenses and Inspections, Commission director Gary Jastrzab wrote that the committee praised the architects for designing the project with surrounding buildings in mind. The committee did have concerns that the small loading space on 20th Street could cause traffic blockages.

The new tower, creatively and perhaps tentatively dubbed 19th + Chestnut, is designed as a by-right project and doesn’t need any zoning variances.

Philadelphia Breaks Ground On Bartram's Trail, A 1.1-Mile Addition To The City's 300+ Miles Of Circuit Trails


Greater Philadelphia’s multi-use trail network, the Circuit, meanders along the Schuylkill River bearing more than 20,000 runners, walkers, bikers and commuters every year. Soon, that trail will extend even further to connect the region. (Image courtesy Andropogon Associates)


One of many planned construction projects that will bring more activity to Schuylkill Banks south of the South Street Bridge, Bartram’s Trail is scheduled to be completed next fall. (Image courtesy Andropogon Associates)


Like the rest of the Schuylkill Banks trails, Bartram’s Trail will be landscaped with lawns and trees. (Image courtesy Andropogon Associates)

Mixed-Use 1213 Walnut Development Breaks Ground



Quote:
One year after purchasing the surface lot next to Fergie's Pub, the Goldenberg Group, Hines, and ASB Real Estate Investments broke ground today on 1213 Walnut. The 300,000-square-foot mixed-use development includes a 26-story residential building that will have 322 rental units—it will not include a hotel component as previously planned, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal. In fact, the development almost didn't happen, after the Goldenberg Group met great resistance from Fergie's and was handed a lawsuit. After a settlement was made, Goldenberg nixed the hotel plans and kept the apartment and retail aspect of the development. ..

^Nice street facade and simple but elegant design! Materiality will make this a quiet gem or yet another bland developer tower.

As far as the theater site tower is concerned, I want to see the other side. How does the tower meet the street? Also, will they renovate the theater lobby that remains?

1911 Walnut St.: New Renderings Released, But Aren't Final



Quote:
Southern Land Company has released updated renderings for 1911 Walnut St., its second development in Philadelphia that will feature luxury apartments, condos, and retail. However, according to the website the company notes that the renderings are not final nor approved, and they're still working with stakeholders and neighborhood associations to finalize the concept. That's important, since the Nashville-based development company had received criticism for its initial efforts to demolish three historic properties on the 1900 block of Sansom Street due to financial hardship: The Rittenhouse Coffee Shop, the Warwick Apartment House, and the Oliver H. Bair Funeral Home. Southern Land Co. later withdrew its application to demolish the coffee shop, but based on the current renderings it doesn't look like the other two properties will make the cut.

Philadelphia is getting its own High Line. Now it's getting its own Hudson Yards:

30th St. Station District Plan Proposes Mixed-Use Neighborhood Above Rail Yards



Quote:
The most recent draft of the 30th Street Station District Plan calls for a partially capped rail yard that will feature a mixed-use neighborhood, pedestrian bridges over the Schuylkill River, and an expansion of the station itself. The plans were unveiled Wednesday night at an open house held at 30th St. Station and are part of a $5.25 million study that includes 175 acres of land surrounding the station—88 of which include the rail yards owned by SEPTA and Amtrak.




Prior to the open house the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that although public comment this summer favored capping most of the rail yard, the most recent draft shows that only 70 acres can be covered due to "engineering challenges."

Alternate Renderings of 1911 Walnut St. Reveal Shorter Tower



Quote:
Yesterday we wrote about some updates to 1911 Walnut Street, the much-anticipated mixed-use development and residential tower that's joining Rittenhouse Square. At a presentation to the Philadelphia Planning Commission on Monday, new renderings were revealed that showed off some alternate options that the developers and architects are currently workshopping with community stakeholders.

Snøhetta Releases New Stunning Renderings of Temple Library



Quote:
Well, now we know that Temple University's library will look downright stunning when covered in snow. Snøhetta has released new renderings of the university's newest library, revealing jaw-dropping interiors and a lovely view of the property at night.

First, the entrance. The 3-story domed atrium lobby, flanked by wooded arches, is designed to look like there are multiple entryways to the library. This space will include a cafe and "24/7 zone" to encourage both the community and students to the library.

Historic Ocean Liner Has 'Exciting Future' With Redevelopment



Quote:
After months of speculation on what might happen to the historic SS United States, once one of the grandest ocean liners on the water, it looks as if a solution to save the ship has been brokered. The SS United States Conservancy, which owns the ship, sent out a press release today revealing that redevelopment is coming, and that details—as well as the partner behind those plans—will be revealed at a press conference on February 4.

The ocean liner is currently docked on the Delaware River in Philadelphia, next to an Ikea—a funny coincidence, considering that one of the redevelopment plans that's been bandied about is bringing the ship to Red Hook and turning it into a mixed-use development. But for now, the conservancy is remaining tight-lipped on where the ship may go or who might be behind its redevelopment.

I had learned about the Philly "High Line" through a friend and I saw some people jogging and riding their bikes in a park underneath the bridges of 30th Station. This is great news.

Here are some photos I took of some projects downtown while I was in Philadelphia last week. I can't recall the exact addresses.

Heading to China Town, I came across this new building the same height the old ones.

Children's Hospital @ 700 Schuylkill

Quote:
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) — one of the best children hospitals in the United States — is entering a major phase of expansion. As the organization's current main campus on Civic Boulevard is approaching capacity, it is moving parts of its research facilities across the Schuylkill river to 700 Schuylkill Avenue. There, a 23-storey, 114-metre edifice is destined to become CHOP's newest addition, and is currently under construction on their 8.4-acre site.
