Developers Goldenberg Group and Hines Development announced that the 26-story tower topped out on January 10, reaching its full height of 285 feet. Now, construction crews are finishing up the facade installation and have moved indoors to begin building up the 322 luxury units.

The apartments are expected to begin leasing in April and be move-in ready by July. The website has little information on the individual units, and rental pricing has not been announced.

It’s been a little over a year since 1213 Walnut broke ground in December 2015, and the tower has risen quickly concrete pour after concrete pour. When construction finishes up this summer, the tower will feature 7,200 square feet of retail along Walnut and Sansom (next to Fergie’s Pub), and a long list of amenities on the upper levels, including a rooftop deck, elevated dog park, and indoor-outdoor fitness center.

It’s also going to be one of the first residential towers of its kind without a parking garage for residents, emphasizing its lean towards tenants who prefer walking or biking. For what it’s worth, there is parking garage next door.
