The Crane Is Going Up at 1919 Market Right NOW

If lovin' cranes is wrong, we don't wanna be right.

Watch out for 1919 Market

Watch out for 1919 Market

Name one thing that gets a development nerd (ourselves wholeheartedly included in that category) more excited than a towering crane being installed at a construction site in the city? While renderings may be a close second, the short answer is probably nothing. It means progress and that something soon will rise from that hole in the ground.

Enter 1919 Market, the looooong vacant lot that will see 321 luxury apartments, a ground floor CVS and, let’s not forget, a golf simulator grace the street at the center of the current development boom we’re seeing from the Delaware River all the way into West Philly.

Here’s what we know and also more crane shots with renderings!

The 29-story project is a joint venture between Brandywine Realty Trust, Berwyn-based real estate company LCOR and the California State Teacher’s Retirement System. The building has been designed by Barton Partners and is slated to be completed by spring 2016.

Here’s the rundown:
– 321 apartments
– 24,000 square feet of office space, primarily for Blue Cross
– ground-floor CVS
– full concierge service
– rooftop fitness center
– roof garden
– rooftop ledge pool
– game room with golf simulator

Here’s what it will look like in the not-too-distant-future:
