Highrise at 38th and Chestnut

BLT Architects' and Radnor Property Group's high rise at 38th and Chestnut is replacing two historic row homes owned by the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral and thus won't win any praise from preservationists, but the ambitious undertaking and redevelopment of a major University City intersection is a significant cog in the West Philadelphia neighborhood's recent building boom which is redefining the skyline west of the Schuylkill River.

Ground breaking is expected to take place in September, with residents moving in by 2015.
