Revolution Development Group says it plans to construct eight new townhomes, to be called Bread Street Estates, on the site of a parking lot at the corner of Race and Bread streets in Old City. The project’s leasing agent told Curbed Philly that the developer will break ground in August with the hope of finishing construction in 10 months, though that may only be the first four homes since the developer’s website says that this will be a two-phase project. According to city records, L&I granted a construction permit for the project in April.
Ambit Architecture of Philadelphia is responsible for the design, which mixes contextual brick with high-modern windows and abstract, rectangular forms. In the renderings the project looks very classy. The website describes the features:
“Designer kitchens by Siematic include granite and quartz counter tops stainless steel appliances and gorgeous cabinetry. The bathrooms are SPA-like with tile and stone floors and walls, glass shower doors and designed fixtures!”
(It is certainly exciting that someone designed those fixtures.)
According to Curbed Philly, the homes will range in price from $800,000 to $1.2 million. Each will have four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, a floating staircase, a garage, two balconies, and views of either Center City or the Ben Franklin Bridge.
