January Was A Busy Month For Madison Concrete Construction

As we enter 2023, we are fortunate to be working on a multitude of great projects in the greater Philadelphia area. So, what has our team been up to over the past few months? In a word…LOTS!


  • Madison Concrete’s superstructure work on the new 20-story, multi-family building at 123 South 12th Street in the Washington Square West neighborhood is now complete and turned over to the other trades. The 371,000-square-foot project includes 399 residential spaces, 94 underground parking spaces and ground-level retail. Want to see the live webcam of the project?

  • We have topped out and started removing material and equipment from the JFK West tower at Schuylkill Yards project. The mixed-use tower at 3025 John F. Kennedy Blvd. provides 200,000 square feet of office space with a dedicated amenity floor.
  • In addition, the Madison crews are working on the 15th level of The Standard at Philadelphia, a 19-story, post-tensioned concrete structure. Adjacent to both campuses of the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University, the units will include high-end and will be open to residents during the fall of 2023.


  • Footings are complete and we are working on the foundation walls at the University of Pennsylvania’s Amy Gutmann Hall. Serving as the home of all data science academic and research programs, this 115,000-square- foot building will house labs, classrooms, and research centers.
  • In February, the Madison team will begin slab pours at University of Pennsylvania’s Vagelos Laboratory for Energy Science and Technology (VLEST) at the University of Pennsylvania. This project, expected to be completed in 2024, will be a model of low-energy laboratory design. It will house high-performance optics labs, fume-intensive chemistry labs, a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer suite with helium recovery and more.
  • At 204 South 12th Street in Washington Square West, Madison teams are working on the foundation walls and structural concrete levels of the 32-story tower. The building will feature 378 residential units as well as 96 parking spaces. In total, the building will hold 401,870 square feet of space.
  • Walkable to Philadelphia’s popular Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, 1620 Sansom Street in Center City offers 254 luxury rental spaces and a 12,000-square-foot rooftop garden terrace. . Previously home to an aging parking garage, we are working a three-day cycle on elevated floors – currently on level 16 of the 27-story structure.
  • With a collection of more than 97,000 works, the Princeton University Art Museum is one of the world’s leading university art museums. Our teams are currently continuing work on concrete floors in the Grand Hall as well as sandblasting more than 60,000 square feet of concrete walls. The combined concrete and steel structure with exposed architectural concrete is expected to open in late 2024.


  • Madison is collaborating with HSC Builders & Construction Managers, WRNS Studios and Thornton Tomasetti on Princeton University’s University Health Services (UHS) Building. We are expecting to start foundation work on the hybrid mass timber and steel structure in mid-February. Construction is expected to be completed in 2024.

Madison is excited to watch these and all of our projects come to completion. If you are planning a project, let us know how we can use our experience and expertise to assist you!
