A seven-story residential building is coming to the site of a recently demolished West Philly church, and recently published plans show what the development may look like.

The modular building, called “Next LVL” is moving into the now-empty lot on 4233 Chestnut Street. It includes 278 residential units, 8,000-square-feet of ground-floor retail, and 54 parking spaces.

New plans posted on the Civic Design Review (CDR) website ahead of a meeting Tuesday show that the building will have a mix of dark brick and metal paneling along with some light wood accents on the facade. It also includes a green roof with a deck, according to the plans posted by JKRP Architects and Alterra Property Group.

It’s the latest news in a long saga for the site, which was home to the Christ Memorial Reformed Episcopal Church for 132 years before it was purchased by Alterra Property Group for $17 million in February. The church was already in the midst of demolition when it changed hands, and the new developers continued to tear it down before announcing plans for the residential building in April.

Developers have also recently wrapped up another building just down the street at 4125 Chestnut called The LVL.

The plans for Next LVL include little new information about what’s coming to the site, but you can check out the renderings below.
