South Kensington,Philadelphia, PA
SOKO Apartments will consist of 320 loft-style apartments, designed to fit the surrounding neighborhood. The project sits on one of the large, vacant industrial sites that have been attracting new, often upscale, redevelopments in South Kensington. Three buildings will surround a courtyard, with retail space at certain corners. At four and seven stories tall, the buildings will be built in two phases and will be clad in brick, composite, and metal panels, with glass bay windows, balconies, and roof decks. The developers plan 130 bike parking spaces and 140 spaces for cars, both in the courtyard and, preliminarily, on the first floor of the American Street building.
