PHILADELPHIA | Temple University Morgan Hall | 27 Floors | 312 feet




Title: Morgan Hall
Project: 1,500 student beds, 3 story retail complex
Architect: MGA Partners
Developer: Temple University/ LF Driscoll Co.
Location: Broad St. and Cecil B. Moore Ave., Philadelphia, PA
Floors: 27
Height: 312 ft

I figured this deserved a thread as well. This is not in Center City (Philadelphia's Central Business District), but it is still considered a high rise. Plans call for a 26 floor high rise at 312 feet, a 3 story retail complex branching off of the tower and an 8 story residential complex with a courtyard in the middle and an underground parking garage. This is currently under construction on the corner of Broad St. and Cecil B. Moore ave. on the Campus of Temple University in Lower North Philadelphia. The foundations are complete and concrete has begun to pour for it's underground parking garage.

I'm doing some math and this building looks like it will come out somewhere around 300ft. Thats assuming 12ft celings like the last round of residence halls.

Wow awesome! I couldn't tell that it was that far along from the street. Does anyone know if they're sticking with the plans of an underground parking garage? Also Parkway, I assume you reside in 1300 Residence Hall?

I believe the garage is going to be in the middle and yes I live on the 4th floor.

South Gateway will probably be Morgan Hall.

I hope this works, I've never used Google's URL shortener before...

Article came with the usual South Gateway Morgan Hall render, below:
