I drove by this yesterday and had the circle the block a few times when I was running an errand. One thing that I think is being overlooked about this development is the size of the first floor footprint.

Everyone is focused on the Amazon Fresh...but that will be in the west side of the building in the one floor portion. But the ceilings on the first floor of the main building are really very high and to me, with the exception of what I assume will be an accommodating lobby, it looks as though the rest of the first floor facing Spring Garden will also be devoted to Retail.

Lastly, the developer keeps a super clean job site. I noticed multiple laborers broom sweeping the street (on both Spring Garden and 5th) at the end of the day. It looked better than the surrounding area. Streets Dept take note.

3 new Philadelphia apartment buildings reach construction milestones

Quote:

Three Philadelphia apartment buildings recently reached development milestones.

An 18-story mixed-use building off Broad Street, a 31-story residential building in Society Hill, and a 12-story building in Northern Liberties have topped out, meaning the structures of the buildings are fully in place as construction continues.

570 N. 5th St.

Philadelphia real estate company Rodin Development's 12-story, 373-apartment building at 570 N. 5th St. was also recently topped off. The Carson will have underground parking with 206 spaces and an Amazon Fresh grocery store, according to previous Philadelphia Business Journal reporting. The building will have studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.

It’s located on the northwest corner of Spring Garden and North 5th streets in the rapidly changing Northern Liberties neighborhood. Move-ins are planned to begin in March or April of 2023.

Amenities planned for The Carson include a club room, fitness center, game lounge, co-working space, brew pub, hardwood basketball court, rooftop terraces, a pool and bike storage.

Great shot!
The Russian Orthodox Church did a fantastic job with the repainting of their dome (not sure what the proper word is). The glittering paint is great!

I agree. It makes it look kind of childish and cheap, and looks a lot like those newer buildings by CCP on the other side of Spring Garden. I'm still ok with it overall.

This is residential, isn't it?
Really looks like an office building.

I was just in the area yesterday. This entire stretch feels COMPLETELY transformed with these new projects going up. It’s incredible. There’s still some more developable plots along Spring Garden, but from I-95 to 5th street already feels completely transformed. It’s incredible. This building doesn’t have the best design but holy shit what an upgrade over what was there.

For sure.

This, with the crane up at 2nd & Spring Garden and the elevator towers poking out of the ground on the SE corner of 5th & Spring Garden, you can already feel the canyon effect, particularly when driving west from Delaware Avenue.

There is some framing going on in the commercial space but its only in the corner by the entrance/elevator. I thought there were rumors last year about Amazon pulling out of the space in this building. Did we ever get an update about that one way or the other?

Yes I drove by it over the weekend. The building makes a big difference being so close to the street. Impressive size. I lived on 4th and Brown for nearly 6 years until 2016, that whole area south of Fairmont is incredible now.

I never heard that rumor.

From my understanding Amazon isn't pulling out of these spaces, but rather stalling the opening or abandoning them altogether. Amazon is however fulfilling their lease agreements. There is another Amazon Fresh on the Boulevard that just recently finished the buildout and has yet to open. Honestly the construction activity in the Northeast is insane right now too, but that's for another discussion

Same in Willow Grove. The Amazon Fresh is fully built, but not open.
