This article by Steve Sclarow explores the Construction Progress Monitoring (CPM) services being used in the construction of 1919 Market, a new high-rise residential building in Philadelphia.
Partner Engineering and Science is proud to be providing Construction Progress Monitoring (CPM) services for Philadelphia’s premier new residential tower, 1919 Market, a joint venture between LCOR and Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN). Located in the heart of Center City, 1919 Market is a 28-story, 321 luxury apartment unit 455,000 square foot mixed-use development, with an integrated 215 car parking structure.
Innovation and facility functionality in the urban core is driving design decisions in Philadelphia’s residential marketplace. The amenities and features incorporated into 1919 Market reflect these needs including “a state of the art fitness center, clubroom, demonstration kitchen, golf simulator, dramatic outdoor roof entertainment center including a fire pit and infinity pool, tech bar and work pod area, wine tasting room with available wine storage, pet wash, bike storage and more.”
1919 Market’s innovation strategy provides a premier level of sustainability and green building design and the project is in the process of obtaining LEED Gold Certification. Features incorporated into the design will reduce the buildings overall environmental impact while enhancing the overall living experience of residents and tenants alike. LEED design elements include low-flow plumbing fixtures, faucets and showers, energy star rated appliances, energy efficient lighting systems, and operable windows in apartment units. Another distinct design consideration is the green roof located atop the parking structure. The green roof will reduce the developments overall carbon footprint by improving stormwater management, reducing the urban heat island effect and improving air quality. Strategically located above the parking structure, the green roof provides a distinctive vista for the residents of 1919 Market and neighboring tenants at 1900 JFK Boulevard.
The corner of 20th and Market Streets is at the epicenter of the Market West Corridor. 1919 Market solidifies the connection of this corridor to Center City’s urban core through the seamless integration of the five story parking structure and mixed-use residential tower. This will be accomplished by incorporating the tower’s curtain wall and storefront glazing system into the parking structure’s façade. Parking will accommodate residents and be available for daily and monthly public parking.
According to LCOR President, Thomas O’Brien, “This is an exciting time in Philadelphia, especially with the reinvigoration of Market West, and we are proud to be a part of its vertical growth. With 1919 Market, we take extreme pride in helping to reduce the city’s carbon footprint by creating a building that embodies and promotes green living. The overall goal is to build a space that can enhance the quality of life for our residents and our local community.”
Units are now available for lease with move-in starting in March 2016. For more information about 1919
