Yesterday ground was broken for 3601 Market, the 28-floor residential tower project from the Southern Land Company, BLT Architects, and the University City Science Center. At the event, BLT Architects Principal Michael Prifti said he and the BLTA team “envisioned a modern building that would be both practical and appealing to the local community.” Southern Land CEO Tim Downey predicted “the building will be a modern jewel for West Philadelphia.”

The building will offer 14,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space; 384 residential units; a game room; yoga and fitness center; and a rooftop swimming pool. Two hundred car and 140 bicycle spaces will comprise parking accommodations.
