Project Description

Dupont Place Apartments

Philadelphia, PA

Community Ventures and Octavia Hill Association commissioned BWA to provide schematic design to develop their vision for a new, market-rate multifamily development in Philadelphia’s Roxborough neighborhood. The intention is to develop the 29,000-square-foot site into 25 to 30 units consisting of one and two bedroom apartments, some of which would be housed in a line of duplexes and some in a facing apartment block. Design challenges and highlights include a steeply-sloping site, creating inviting connections between buildings, and a “hidden” central parking area with landscaped commons.
