It looks like a lot of hot girls will be walking around and hanging out in this building.

Updates

Does anyone have any updates on this proposed tower. It would make a great addition to this area of the city.

U3 website has nothing new. I know they seem to be focused on their 42nd and Baltimore project and their staffing is small, so maybe they want to get this under their belt before taking on what they consider their flagship project.

I saw Fergie at his new beer garden yesterday and asked him about the project. He told me he has a meeting with U3 AND Goldenberg this Friday (tomorrow).

Whenever I think this thing is dead, something new happens. Just witnessed a large machine (backhoe/excavator something with an arm and a bucket) being moved onto this site. No permits or anything posted... unless Brickstone is parking machines for their chestnut st project here...

Right now they are digging a few test pits to determine different soil conditions. Construction is still pretty far out. Maybe 2nd Quarter of 2015.

Aw heck, that's still a lot sooner than the "never" that I had assumed. I can wait a few months. I'm just excited that this is actually happening. This is a terrific development. It's quite well designed and gets rid of a prominent surface lot.

I too assumed this one was dead. Thanks ConstructStudent!

Because construction is proposed to begin in several months usually means that lots of other ducks still need to be lined up before anyone to feel confident that it will actually happen.

What matters is having very legally strong financial commitments in place. Without that, all date estimates are basically just air blown around.

For this or other perpetually delayed projects, the key question is: is there a tight financing commitment yet? If not, don't hold your breath.

Goldenberg Group buys lot

Quote:
Goldenberg is expected to construct a 26-story apartment building that will have about 300 apartments and retail space at the ground level. Goldenberg is reportedly doing the $100 million-plus project in partnership with Hines, a Houston-based development company.

From Center City District

Quote:
The Goldenberg Group has purchased 1213-1219 Walnut Street for $8.2 million from U3 Ventures and is expected to move forward with a 26-story apartment building that will have about 300 apartments and retail space at the ground level, the Philadelphia Business Journalreported on December 16. Goldenberg is reportedly doing the $100 million-plus project in partnership with Hines, a Houston-based development company, the article noted. The parcel is currently a surface parking lot.

The project has the potential to be an anchor east of Broad Street and could accommodate a large national chain store in the retail space, the article noted.

Permits posted on site. I was driving by so couldn't stop to take a look. Looks like it could be a foundation permit.

Nothing on L&I indicates a recent change in activity.

I hope there is some lag between what's on the street and what's online. I'd love for this to be true.

I looked at it- all it says is previously issued approvals have been extended until 2016. Nothing exciting.

Beginning in mid-July?

Apparently a Goldenberg representative said they intend to break ground later this year, and the owner of Fergie's mentioned mid-July. Looks like this one is revived from the dead yet again!
