Visions of The Grove at Cira Centre South




Quote:
The latest renderings of the planned Grove at Cira South tower show a luxury vision of student life: a rooftop pool, (will grad students emerge from their officecaves to use a pool? In the sunlight?), a concierge level with coffee service, and a 24 hour fitness center. The architects say that they've planned the building to be a social, inviting space. Hidden City called the renderings "elegant" and "complex", and the renderings, complete with semi-opaque rendering people, do give a sleek, glassy glimpse of things to come.

The oft-criticized 11 story parking garage next door will also get updated, perhaps to stem some of the controversy. The plans call for a public green roof, in order to create some open, public green space in the area. The tower will also incorporate ground-level retail, which will help it become a vibrant part of the neighborhood. The retail space is also designed to give the tower a social feel, like many other features that have been incorporated into the tower. There are public lounges, concierge areas, a media lab, and a library. Though most of the apartments will be one bedrooms, the tower might well become a social space for students.

Nice to see high rises expanding over west again. The first CIRA tower always looked great coming into downtown, even though it's not that tall. These buildings will really stand out due to their location. I prefer the original designs, though.

Cira Centre South's Final Tower Revealed



Quote:
News broke yesterday that the long-anticipated third and final tower of the Cira Centre South complex is officially on the way. The new FMC Tower will top out at 650 feet (25 feet taller than the G. Fred DiBona Jr. Building at 19th & Market), a very nice addition to the rapidly developing western part of the skyline. Since we're all hungry for a glimpse of the new skyline, Curbed put together all the project renderings we could find, including originals from 2007.

The building's design has been modified a few times, with the current plan closely resembling the original renderings that were released in 2007. The blocky design from 2011 is thankfully nowhere to be seen.

Quote:
FMC Tower Facts:

· 47 stories, 650 feet tall

· 830,000 SF of total rentable space, including 575,000 SF of office space, 235,000 SF of luxury residential space, and 10,000 SF of retail

· Currently 61 percent pre-leased (253,000 SF to FMC and 100,000 SF to University of Pennsylvania)

· Includes Cira Green, a one-acre park atop the existing parking garage, connected by a skybridge to FMC Tower

· Design by Pelli Clarke Pelli and BLT Architects

· Total project cost: $341 million









*Note: A separate thread in Skyscrapers has been created for the new tower: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1669955

A pool with such a view on the skyline is pretty cool:

Interesting how the Union station area is getting beautified! Phila needs development - that is undeniable!
