Dilworth House

A brouhaha on Washington Square? Yes indeed–for the better part of a decade now, a major condo proposal has lingered on its east side, behind 1950s-mayor Richardson Dilworth’s former residence, bisecting the two halves of the Athenaeum. This Turchi offering, including an expansion of that storied institution into Dilworth’s house financed by a 15-story Robert Venturi-designed condo structure behind, has caught the attention (and wrath) of preservation advocates, and a long train of Plan Philly stories.

Update: Commonwealth Court upholds Dilworth House appeal

The proposal. Courtesy Plan Philly.

So, as the developer and the community fight one another, the site sits, a minor black hole on the square’s duller east side.

Stay tuned–we will have more information as and when court rulings happen it becomes available!

New Condos In Society Hill

 

Traditionally suburban home developer Toll Brothers–of Naval Square fame–has set its sights on Society Hill, with a 69 unit, 68 feet tall condo unit by Headhouse Square, in the NewMarket site, as Plan Philly reports. With red brick and limestone wainscoting, this structure is deeply respectful of its historic surroundings.

Designed and contracted in-house, this project will also feature a small public space on the Headhouse Square side. Take a look at the renders and see for yourself.

Nevertheless, some near neighbors remain opposed to the structure: parking and sunlight issues have been brought up. Considering the rather vexed history of this site, we here are crossing our fingers and hoping everything gets worked out, and they are allowed to build.

New Townhomes Coming to East Passyunk

i goldberg warehouse east passyunk

Like whoa.

That big old building used to be the I. Goldberg company warehouse. At 13th and Chestnut, I. Goldberg is our fair city’s premier military surplus store. Back in their heydey they owned a warehouse at the corner of 12th and Latona Streets in the heart of East Passyunk.

Yes.

And now it’s a pile of dirt.

According to our insider sources, the site was purchased for $825,000 in late 2011 and the new owner’s intent is for 12 to 13 townhomes selling in the range of $425,000 each. L&I’s mum on the matter, as are the locals at the watering hole, but QB3 is the listed architect. Rest assured, we will keep you updated with what we can find out when we find out about it.

Yikes.

Now, if only a certain building down the street could see some love…
