A year after proposing a development with over 200 townhomes along the Delaware River, Philly-based group U.S. Construction has substantially tweaked their plan.
Now, the focus is on fewer townhomes, more apartments, and a closer connection to a nearby walking trail.
The new proposal for the space at 1401 South Columbus Boulevard, was released online this week ahead of a Civic Design Review (CDR) meeting on April 2.
Dubbed “Waterfront Boulevard,” it calls for 92 townhomes on the north end of the property, with a mixed-use building on the south end. The building will include 330 multi-family units, 20,000 square feet of commercial space, and both garage and surface-level parking. The project also plans to move an originally planned riverfront plaza, back from the water a few feet, allowing the Delaware River Trail to pass between the development and the waterfront, uninterrupted.
