2116 Chestnut | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Developed as a luxury rental property for a young graduate school market, the residential tower speaks both to the surrounding neighborhood and to the young, fresh, global experience of cities around the world. To accomplish this, the building base meets the street in scale and a height appropriate to surrounding existing structures. This base houses the lobby, retail, and disguises off-street parking. The tower steps back from the base at the fifth floor and rises as a glassy beacon for the western portion of Center City. The smaller tower footprint also allows for a fifth floor garden and bar area featuring sunning and hot tub amenities. These exterior spacious impart an aura of oasis to the amenities inside, club rooms and work out areas, along with amazing city views beyond.
