DRWC should of stipulated the design be bold and not boring or run of the mill as part of the condition of the award. We have too many of that already...LOL.

Rendering Revealed For 24-Story Building At 300 North Christopher Columbus Boulevard In Center City





Quote:
A new rendering has been revealed for a proposed 290-foot-tall residential building at 300 North Christopher Columbus Boulevard. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by the Durst Organization, the 24-story structure would replace a large parking lot on the Delaware River waterfront. The development is planned to rise three-quarters as high as the nearby 385-foot-tall Benjamin Franklin Bridge and will bring much-needed activity to the neglected stretch of the waterfront.

Thought it was cool to revisit some of these projects. Stumbled upon that website this weekend. Plus, I think that website is from a forum member here, so cool to support him. Why does it matter to you so much that you felt the need to comment? Lol

Penn's Landing developer Durst talks Philadelphia appeal for first project outside of New York

Quote:
The Durst Organization is spearheading three projects along the Delaware River.

The Penn’s Landing project is the centerpiece, with plans calling for 3.5 million square feet of mixed-use space, including thousands of new residential units, hundreds of hotel rooms and tens of thousands of square feet in retail space. The company is also redeveloping a group of piers near the Ben Franklin Bridge, which Durst said can be a significant development because of the potential zoning floor area at the site.

The third project is located at Vine Street on the west side of Delaware Avenue, where the company will spend another $250 million to $300 million to build a 370,000-square-foot mixed-use building on the vacant parcel, Durst said. The Vine Street project is in the permitting stages, and development will take place simultaneously with the Penn's Landing project, he said.

“We don’t want to put a lot of residences onto the market during a significant downturn of the economy,” Durst said. “That wouldn’t work well for DRWC, the city or for us, so we’re looking at that very closely.”

^ I’ll be surprised if one shovel hits the ground before 2030 on any of their projects here

^Why in the world would the DRWC choose a development partner that was going to do nothing for the next 10 years when their giant crown jewel (Penn's Landing Park) is being built and ready for the public? While that statement above is clearly not what is ideal, I can't imagine that the head of the DRWC is thinking "My job will be secure if we make these big announcements and nothing ever happens - this seems like the right move."

Basically, I am hoping you both are very wrong about this start date lol (though i definitely agree with your concerns).

I don’t know, why would they pick a development partner that’s owned land in the city since 2017 and hasn’t even filed for a zoning permit ? The city’s track record at picking developers is awful.

Good point - expecting people to make rational, thoughtful decisions for the right reasons is always a dangerous thing to assume here.

Let's hope they know something we don't know about all of this and that the 8-9 year timeline for completing these projects is indeed realistic

Just wanted to note that the DWRC isn't part of the city government (though 2 current City employees, and 1 former high-level city employee, appear to be on their 16 member board of directors).

I think the likely reason why Durst was picked was because they put forth what was by far the best plan. I don't think there's anything particularly head scratching about it. Nothing is set in stone yet though, and hopefully the DWRC makes sure any finalized agreement includes assurances the project will get started well before 2030.

Even if it is a few years before we see any progress though, keep in mind, it's not like the economic downturn is a figment of their imagination. Pretty unlikely we'd see quick action here regardless of who was picked.

Do we have any renderings for this other than the drawing above? I feel like we don't have a good enough idea of what this will look like.

Not an exciting building. The many angles will allow for some great apartments with great views. I think these will be very popular. The density for the waterfront is great. I'm hoping there will be a very innovative and inviting ground floor with restaurant space

This will make a huge difference on that stretch. The possibilities for Del Ave are yuuuuge.

Morgan's Pier is salivating at the notion of this.
