philadelphia, pennsylvania


Located in North Philadelphia, adjacent to Temple University, Vantage is an urban mixed-use student housing high-rise. The challenge was to create spaces that promote community engagement while preserving the panoramic views of Philadelphia from The View, phase I of the 2 phase development. Three public zones were strategically positioned to define the optimal building placement, creating spaces where people can live, eat, learn, and interact with the community. One 12-story tower over 20,000 sf of retail and a 19-story residential tower are connected by a 7-story communal bridge and reside in a park-like setting of landscaping, paths, and seating areas that serve the residents and the neighboring community. Vantage completes the client’s vision for the site’s masterplan by incorporating state of the art amenities that foster social engagement and by providing an unparalleled student housing experience.
