New Urban Ventures
Mixed Use Development - Large Size Projects
The three acre at North 10th and Green Streets, in what is known as the West Popular neighborhood in Philadelphia, had been vacant since a failed urban renewal effort in the 1960s.  Spring Arts Point is a mixed use, mixed income project with 53 townhomes, 20 condominiums and 5,000-square feet of retail on the ground floor. All units will have dedicated off-street parking and buried utility lines.  Public transit – subway, bus and trolley -- are within a 10-minute walk. The scale and character of the surrounding neighborhood – row homes, apartment buildings and industrial loft buildings – is reflected in the project’s design. The project is seeking a U.S. Green Building Council LEED certification and minimizes impact on indigenous vegetation and natural systems.
