All-in-one convenience

This 325,000 sf, 26-story mixed-use building is to be built on property owned by the historic Episcopal Cathedral in Philadelphia and will be a vital revenue generating property to support the future of the cathedral. Adjacent to the University of Pennsylvania campus, the building will feature 276 residential rental apartments, offices, ground floor retail space, additional cathedral facilities and one floor of underground parking for 50 cars.

The building utilizes a conventionally reinforced cast-in-place concrete flat plate floor system supported on drilled piers. Due to property line constraints on four sides and existing buildings on two sides, cantilever grade beams were used to maximize the tower footprint on the tight site.

This project received the Willard G. “Bill” Rouse III Award for Excellence from Urban Land Institute, Philadelphia Chapter.
