The Goldenberg Group is creating a mixed-use community that benefits Temple University students and Philadelphia residents alike.
In September, The Goldenberg Group broke ground on the final phase of its redevelopment of JohnWanamaker High School, located near Temple University in Philadelphia. At completion, the 4.6-acre property will provide more than 1,800 beds for Temple students and 40,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and commercial space in a resort-style community.
Atlanta-based Niles Bolton designed the latest phase of the off-campus housing project, located at 12th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue. The $199 million, 470,000-square-foot
phase will feature 984 beds in one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom configurations, along with 30,000 square feet of retail space. It is slated to open in time for fall 2019 occupancy.
