Ave of the Arts building going Apartments.
We are continuing our hot streak on the 1300 block of Chestnut Street and working our way up North on Broad. If you didn’t already know, we’ve done the schematic plans for the Juniper Hotel, we’ve fit out Dick Blick, we’ve done the Lucky Strike, we’ve done the Olive Garden, and we’ve done the Capital Grille. Now we are going fit out the rest of the Avenue of the Arts building with 220 upscale apartments at 176k SF of space via a gut renovation, adding a state-of-art fitness center and roof deck, with units ready in 2016.The building was originally built in 1897 as office space and was most recently used as student housing for the University of the Arts. We’re in there surveying as we speak!
