This is a very important project and one i’m thrilled to see moving forward. I was coming back from nyc just this past weekend and was scoping this site on the train, hoping there’d be some movement. needless to say, this would be a massive boost to the vibrancy of the area and could be a key connecting hub, both in terms of filling some residential development gaps between temple and medical campus and the revamped station. here’s to hoping a project of this scale lifts the entire area - but this is a very encouraging start and a sexy design to boot.

North Philly station developers offer peek at first new building proposed on vacant lot


A nearly block-long mid-rise with gridlike windows and a concrete-panel facade is proposed as the first building to rise as part of the so-called North Station District development plan for the blighted area around Amtrak’s North Philadelphia station.

North Station District LLC, the consortium of real estate investors behind the planned development, is scheduled to present its plan for the seven-story building with 135 dwelling units and ground-floor retail to the Philadelphia Civic Design Review board March 5, according to the board’s website.

The 10 North Station mid-rise, which would run along the south side of Indiana Avenue from Broad Street until close to 15th Street, would be the first project of what could be 1.7 million square feet of new homes, research labs, and offices on now vacant warehouses and empty lots.

Additional projects include a retail building along the rail tracks south of the residential mid-rise, the transformation of an 180,000-square-foot derelict industrial building to the west into work spaces, and improved connections to the historic Amtrak station building, according to documents posted to the CDR board’s website.

The project’s backers, which include HFZ Capital Group of New York, acquired the project site for $2.1 million in mid-2016 from Amtrak and SEPTA.

The CDR board offers suggestions on the city’s biggest development proposals as part of Philadelphia’s planning process.

Looks like this project received additional state grant funding back on November 15th:

I just recently got an update on this project-- it is (very) slowly moving forward, but moving forward nonetheless.

yeah, this project makes a lot of sense, especially in regards to transit oriented development. Only other spot in the city that has all the regional rail lines and Amtrak passing through, in addition to the BSL.
