An adaptive reuse project that sees a former hospital transformed into a Francisville apartment building, just wrapped up at the corner of 16th and Girard.

Dubbed The Civic, the building offers 88 residential units, from “micro” and studio apartments to two-beds. Rates start at $1,100 per month. Developers MMPartners say the units offer an open concept design with stone countertops in the kitchens and laundry in each apartment.

“We envisioned a true ‘‘work, live, play’ environment” MMPartners co-founder Dave Waxman said in a statement.

The Civic features amenities like a roof deck with Center City views, a game room, and a yoga studio. There’s also on-premise parking for residents.

The $24 million renovation transformed the building, which used to be St Joseph’s Hospital but closed in 2016.
