Post Brothers Apartment Building at 12th and Vine

The 10 story abandoned building at 12th and Vine is getting a new LEED on life with bright future as a 163 unit apartment building, 7,000 square feet of retail space, LEED-certification, rooftop pool and "dog socializing area".


The building was purchased by Post Brothers Apartments last year and due to be fully transformed sometime this upcoming Fall.  The building will be wrapped in a brand-knew metal skin and vegetated biowalls, that will not only give it a modern aesthetic, but will also add to its energy efficiency.




The building is located near the Reading Viaduct in the newly designated Callowhill Industrial Historic District.  This could potentially be the kick start to reviving and exposing the amazing potential this neighborhood and the Viaduct has to offer.
