PHILADELPHIA | 1919 Market St. | 112m | 367ft | 29 fl | U/C



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New luxury apartment tower at 1919 Market Street, in Center City, is about to begin construction

Quote:
Posted on September 24, 2013

Another highrise luxury apartment tower is soon to break ground in Center City, at 1919 Market Street, on the corner of 20th & Market Streets. This new tower is on the site of a conspicuous lawn right in the middle of Center City’s largest and tallest office corridor. The site is next to the Independence Blue Cross Tower and was originally supposed to have a twin building on it, but that did not happen. A developer wanted to build a condo tower there a few years ago, but that didn’t work out either, so the site was bought by Brandywine Realty Trust, developers of the Cira Centre South development that includes Evo at Cira Centre South, at 30th and Chestnut Streets, that I wrote about a few months ago. Brandywine has been building office and residential space, in Center City and University City, after buying up several Center City office buildings.

This new tower, designed by Barton Partners and called simply enough, 1919 Market Street, will be 28 storeys and 367 feet tall, a respectable height in this highrise neighborhood on the border of Rittenhouse Square and Logan Circle (or Logan Square, if you will). It will contain 278 upscale apartment units, intended for the many workers that would be within walking distance of the large corporate office district surrounding it (and the trolleys to West Philadelphia, which connect for free to the Market/Frankford line and the Broad Street subway, and to the regional rail lines at 30th Street Station and Suburban Station, are just outside at their 19th Street Station). The entire first floor will have retail space (except for the lobby, of course) and the second floor will have office space, that could also be used for additional retail space if there is enough demand. The commercial space will total approximately 25,000 square feet on both floors. The third and fourth floors will have bi-level loft apartments facing Market Street. There will be 223 parking spaces in a five-storey garage, north of the building on Commerce Street, and 108 bike storage spaces. The parking garage will, also, have retail on 20th Street and there will be retail, and the entrance to the office space, on a renovated plaza across from the Independence Blue Cross Tower at the eastern end of the building, that will be a focal point with outdoor seating. The entrance to the residences will, also, be on the eastern end along Market Street, with a large sign on the overhang saying “1919“.

1919 Market received approval from the Planning Commission’s Civic Design Review Board at their meeting on Tuesday, August 7 and approval from the full Planning Commission, at their August 20th meeting, and the Zoning Board of Adjustment on September 10.

PhillyDeals: Apartment tower is new plan for 1919 Market

Quote:
Posted: October 28, 2014

The latest plan for Philadelphia's most expensive grassy field - at 1919 Market St. , the gap in Center City's skyscraper row - is to dig it up and build a 29-story, 321-apartment, $140 million glass-walled tower, owner Brandywine Realty Trust said Monday.

There have been other plans for towers on the site, before and since Brandywine bought the lot in 2011. But this time the money is committed, and work is to start immediately, Brandywine says. Its new partner is Berwyn-based LCOR CalSTRS, a successor to the former Linpro Co., which invests for the giant California State Teachers Retirement System.

Brandywine previously planned a little more business and a little less housing at the site with partner Independence Blue Cross, whose headquarters is next door.

But "since we're a health insurer and not typically in the real estate business, after reviewing our strategic business needs, we decided to sell our interest in the land to Brandywine and to become a tenant in a portion of the retail space," Independence spokeswoman Judimarie Thomas told me. Independence and a CVS drugstore will fill most of the 24,000 square feet of commercial space in the 455,000-square-foot tower.
