Before the project went to the Civic Design Review (CDR), we told you about a proposal that would bring 1,096 residential units, commercial space, office space, a residential amenity building, a community center, 541 bike spaces, 1,210 car parking spots, and an extension of the Delaware River trail to the large vacant riverfront lot at 2001 Beach St. This parcel is right next to Graffiti Pier in the Riverwards. For more background about the project, read the original article.
It looks like the project is taking a big next step forward. The owners took the proposal through the CDR process over the last three months. Just this week, they pulled new construction permits for the development. This is a clear sign that the project is progressing. We imagine that this project will happen in many phases. Lenders do not usually fund such a large project with one disbursement. The developers will likely need to hit certain construction and sales milestones to fund future phases of the project. But, now they have construction permits for the whole development in hand.
Here is the exact language of the new construction permits:
