Another big development proposition for the Waterfront

This one would indeed be large and in charge.

Here are some of the details:

  • Four Towers
    • 2 Larger Towers = 426 Feet Each
    • 2 Smaller Towers = 227 Feet Each
  • 1,458 Residential Units
  • Mixed-Use Project
  • Public Green Space
  • Green Roofs
  • Roof-Top Swimming Pools
  • LEED Certified

Sounds like a cool project, right?

It will be interesting to see if Philadelphia's City Planning Commission overrides the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation on this one (they do have the power to). While the project sounds awesome, and meets most of the Delaware River Master Plan's goals, it exceeds the height limits set forth in the plan.

As the economy starts to pick up even more, I'm sure this issue will keep popping up. Let's see if builders and planners can come to some kind of an agreement on these proposed projects.
