Rising between two existing structures and towering at 209 feet, The Standard at Philadelphia is one of Landmark Properties’ newest student housing projects. Designed by CUBE 3 and located at 119 South 31st Street, The Standard At Philadelphia is adjacent to both University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University campuses. Its 280 units include gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and hardwood laminate floors. Residents will also enjoy amenities such as a fitness center, pool, computer labs, a student lounge and a 14th floor roof deck that has views of Philadelphia’s downtown.
The 376,640-square-foot project is situated halfway between West Philly’s low-rise buildings and the high-rises in downtown Philadelphia. Working with Gilbane Building Co., Madison started foundation work on this 19-story, post-tensioned concrete structure during the spring of 2022. Within the next few weeks, we will be completing the concrete structure and begin to demobilize from the site.
A recent article in Philadelphia YIMBY includes a multitude of current project photos.
With an opening date planned for the 2023-24 school year, the hundreds of apartments that the building adds to the neighborhood will considerably lessen the local housing scarcity and serve the numerous universities in the vicinity.
