Project: Residential, office/commercial, hotel, retail

Pennrose-led group chosen to develop sprawling city-owned site in Chinatown

A team led by the developer Pennrose has been selected to build a complex of dwelling units, offices, hotel rooms, and shops on the largest remaining parcel of municipally owned land in Center City.

The Pennrose-led group was chosen largely on the strength of its proposed architecture and site plan for the 3.2-acre lot at Chinatown’s eastern edge, Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority executive director Gregory Heller said in an interview Monday.

Philadelphia-based Pennrose, which is partnering with the Philadelphia Bar Foundation on its proposal for the lot occupying most of the area bounded by Race Street and the Vine Street Expressway, between Eighth and Ninth Streets, was selected over a team led by Parkway Corp., also based in Philadelphia.

Pennrose’s plan entails a 14-story, 160,000 square foot office building for legal aid organizations; an 11-story, 150-unit apartment tower; 55 units of affordable senior housing; a 147-room Comfort Inn hotel; and a 143-spot parking lot. Ground-floor retail is planned throughout the complex, which is being designed by the architecture firm WRT LLC of Philadelphia and San Francisco.
