After a long and winding journey, Carl Dranoff’s latest luxury tower, One Riverside, officially broke ground yesterday. When complete, the Cecil Baker-designed building will rise 22-stories above the ground and feature sweeping views of the Schuylkill River as well as multiple vantage points of both the Center City, and ever-expanding University City skylines.

The One Riverside project will be Dranoff’s fourth foray into residential development along the Schuylkill River. Previous developments include Locust Point, Locust on the Park and the Left Bank, which is on the University City side of the river at 3131 Walnut Street.

The project, expected to reach completion Summer 2017, will ultimately feature 82 luxury condos.

The groundbreaking was originally scheduled for May 13, but Dranoff postponed the ceremony out of respect for the victims and first responders of the Amtrak tragedy that occurred a day earlier.
