The Grove at Cira Centre South

Previously circulated as Cira Centre South, a University City proposal expanding on the crystalline skyscraper complementing 30th Street Station, Campus Crest Communities, Inc., Brandywine Realty Trust, and Harrison Street Real Estate Capital will be building a 33 story, $159M, student housing highrise called The Grove at Cira Centre South

Campus Crest Communities, Inc. is based in Charlotte, NC. The highrise will be located at 2930 Chestnut Street, across from the recently renovated IRS building along the Schuylkill River. 


  1. That block shaped building will not compliment Cira Center North. If that's the final design it's quite "ugly" relative to the Cira Centre building design. Seemingly they're cutting corners.

    1. I stated that the existing Cira Centre complements 30th Street Station, and I think that it does so very well. I'm happy to see something filling this site, but I didn't say whether I thought it was ugly or not. I'm sure this rendering is very preliminary.
