2 residential towers proposed for parking lot near North Broad

A two-tower mixed-use development called the Hamilton is in the pipeline for a parking lot near North Broad, according to new renderings released ahead of an upcoming Civic Design Review meeting.

Designed by MY Architecture and developed by Radnor Property Group, the proposal for the Hamilton calls for 600 residential units and 8,000 square feet of retail at 440 N. 15th Street. The total proposed project clocks in at 504,035 square feet, with a 197-foot-tall tower and a shorter 131-foot-tall building, both clad in metal and glass.

The project, which is proposing a two-phase build-out, will also include 150 parking spaces, a mix of above-and below-grade.

Currently, the site is a parking lot that was built by the Philadelphia Inquirer in the 1960s. It’s currently owned by the Community College of Philadelphia and is zoned CMX-4.

The Hamilton would be Radnor Property’s first project along the burgeoning North Broad corridor after developing Vue32 and 3737 Chestnut, both in University City.

The Hamilton project goes to the Civic Design Review on January 10.
