The design proposal for Woods Square, a massive mixed-use development planned for 2621-67 Frankford Avenue, has been released ahead of the July 5 Civic Design Review.
The plans call for a 176,000-square-foot retail and residential development that will include 20,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground level, 14,500 square feet of office space, and 178 units.
Currently, the 87,613-square-foot site is a vacant lot that was previously owned by Woods Brothers Building Materials.
The proposal states that three five-floor residential buildings will rise from the base of the main building. The designers, Robert Anthony Peralta Architect, have also proposed two green roof terraces in between each structure.
The East Kensington Neighborhood Association voted 61 to 33 in favor of the design plans back in April.
The July 5 CDR meeting will also see presentations on Philadelphia University’s master plan, Temple University’s Wellness Center, the Immaculate Mary Center, and a residential development in Northern Liberties for 43 single-family homes.
