Little tidbit on this in a PhillyMag article today

Quote:
3737 Chestnut won't be RPG's only project in West Philly. They're currently working on a dynamic 16-story building at 3201 Race Street, which will contain a mix of apartments, a large childcare facility and a public green space that overlooks the train yards and directly at the skyline. At the time, Yeager called 3201 Race Street "the next stepping stone" to complement their work at 3737 Chestnut and also hailed it as a "driver" for Drexel to recruit staff and keep them nearby. The project also includes 12 separate town homes to the north of the development.

I had to look this up on the map to see how far away it is from the towers @30th Street and it's quite far.

I have no problem with the height.
It will be seen, but it is isolated away from the energy around 30th Street.

Not at all. It's a few minutes - 5 max - from 30th Street Station.

It's a nice building, but it could be taller than what they're proposing! I'm more concerned about the occupancy than just the height alone.

it will be very prominent because of its location, in spite of its modest height.

This is a few floors taller than Millennium Hall and is very close by. I'm surprised I don't see it in the renderings. In any case, it will certainly very visible. As for the building itself, it's quite generic and has too much cheap paneling. The height is very respectable.

Awesome news! I was just thinking about this project yesterday, yearning for it to begin. Can't wait for it to start!

It's 17 floors. Philly.com literally gets the floor count wrong every time. I think they don't like counting amenity floors as actual floors? IDK?

Glad to see a childcare facility go up near there to make the area more family friendly. I have no doubt John Fry was hoping or actively tried to make that happen. I hope to see a new high school on the science center site modeled on Penn Alexander. Full gentrification of Mantua and Powelton seems inevitable now.
