The Pincus Project at 4th and Race

As mentioned a few months back, a future development has been in the works for a hotel/residential project with a very large restaurant proposed at the existing site of an abandoned warehouse on race street between 5th and 4th streets.

Renderings have been found from Blackney Hayes Architects portraying an incorporated adaptive reuse of the existing 3-story brick building into ground floor retail with parking and residential units above, a 7-story overbuild to create a 200- room hotel, and a new 150- unit residential building.

In addition to successfully integrating the new construction with the existing building, BHA took the approach of maximizing views toward Independence Mall, rotating the overbuilt mass 45 degrees to the south and creating an outdoor roof terrace above the existing 3-story building.  A dynamic elevator tower element and textural treatment of the walls through panelized construction create an iconic focal point at the northeast corner of the mall.
