1900 Arch Street Update

The corner of 19th and Arch streets is busy with construction as a new Luxury condo building goes up across the street from where the former American Commerce Center was to be located.  I am personally all for a new super scraper to top off the Philly skyline, Comcast Center just doesn't do it for me.

The new residential building to be added to the Philly market, 1900 Arch Street, designed by Varenhorst Architects, is being developed by EBRM & PMC Property Group.  The mixed use development includes 26,000 SF of ground level retail and second-floor office space.  The upper floors house 236 one-and-two-bedroom units which been designed to maximize views of the city.  As a benefit to the residents and the neighbors, green roofs and landscaped courtyards complete the vision for this former vacant site.

Varenhorst worked closely and collaboratively with the client, community groups, and the city of Philadelphia to realize this substantial new addition to Center City.  The architect's solution to optimize construction of the project incorporates a modular structural wall system, a panelized rainscreen facade, and energy-efficient mechanical systems.

  1. As a neighbor of this project, I'd like to know how high each of the 3 "roofs" will be?
