A new rental community seems to be in the works for the corner of 16th and Samson. The Philadelphia Business Journal’s Natalie Kostelni reports that New York-based Pantzer Properties has acquired an eight-story building at 1605 Samson Street, its second purchase on the block this year.

Pantzer previously bought the Oakwood Philadelphia at 1601 Samson for $28.87 million. That property, which has 80 residential units and 11,192 square feet of retail space, is slated to become a market rate rental community called the Point at Rittenhouse Row.

Kostelni says their latest purchase of the Sansom apartment complex (104 rental units and 10,900 square of retail space) cost $42 million.
