Situated on a former industrial brownfield site, Edgewater is a $117 million apartment and structured parking complex. This 290-apartment, 600-car parking project won enthusiastic neighborhood support through the use of design features sensitive to the existing community. The parking garage frontages are disguised with a façade of townhouses to animate rather than destroy the neighborhood streetscape. The project also included an adjacent site that has been approved for a second phase of Edgewater – construction of a new 22-story, 240 apartment building on an existing surface parking lot.
Fronting the Schuylkill River, this highly visible site has immediate access from Interstates 76 and 676. Residents of Edgewater enjoy a more “suburban setting” with lush landscaping, setback location, direct access to the Schuylkill River Trail and a private dog park, all while maintaining the convenience of living in Center City. It is described as the “best of both worlds.”
