Plans for one of the last remaining Northern Liberties lots held by developer Bart Blatstein will go before the Philadelphia's Civic Design Review board early next month.
The project at Second Street and Germantown Avenue sits just northeast of Schmidt's Commons and is named Piazza Terminal, in recognition of the former name for the courtyard destination.
Led by Blatstein's Tower Investments, Inc., Piazza Terminal would look to add about 1,200 apartments to one of Philadelphia's most desirable neighborhoods to live. The property would consist of six buildings arranged around a plaza with commercial space on the lower level.
A project application includes several renderings and site plans for the proposal, which marks another attempt to breathe new life into a space that has lost some of its draw in recent years.
