The Passyunk Post reported on the updated renderings of 22 homes proposed to take place of the warehouse on 22nd and Wharton Streets.  The vacant warehouse will be demolished and replaced with residential homes. Originally, the plans presented last year were met with opposition from the neighbors due to the project’s lack of parking. Since then, the renderings have been updated with 1 car parking for each home.

Each home will be 1,800 square feet with three bedrooms, a roof deck and a finished basement. A demolition start date has not yet been announced.

SEPTA Releases Plans for 15th St Station Renovation

septa

This week SEPTA released plans that detail the reconstruction of the City Hall Station on the Broad Street Line and 15th Street. According to PhillyMag.com, SEPTA does not plan on beginning construction until  2016 due to the visit of Pope Francis in September and the Democratic National Convention in Summer 2016. Due to the mass amount of visitors expected for both major events, officials want to ensure the station is fully operable during that time.

Once the DNC is over, reconstruction will begin and is expected to be SEPTA’s biggest project yet. On a side note, this City Hall station renovation will take up to four years to complete.  According to a SEPTA representative, the project will be broken down into phases so the 15th Street and City Hall stations can remain open and passenger inconvenience be avoided.

The biggest task for SEPTA engineers is the City Hall station, which is planned for new elevators and ramps. The $110 million project was approved for funding after the transportation funding packaged passed last year.

One Liberty Place Observation Deck Opening Fall 2015

One Liberty Place

Initially the new observation deck for One Liberty Place, located at 1650 Market Street, was scheduled to open this summer. Unfortunately, the big opening has been postponed for this fall.  According to Philadelphia Magazine, a spokesperson confirmed that the opening is more likely to happen after Labor Day.  The project has yet to be named but the groundbreaking ceremony with Mayor Michael Nutter is scheduled for next month.

Plans for the new observation deck were initially proposed back in September.  The observation deck will be located on the 57th floor of One Liberty Place and plans to include a private elevator and cafe/restaurant.  As the project progresses and groundbreaking commences, more details should be released.
