Spring Garden was a dead zone 20 years ago and in 20 years from now it
will be completely unrecognizable. The lower end of Spring Garden
continues to grow with the official groundbreaking of a $160 million
luxury apartment complex. A massive Whole Foods will be anchoring the
building just off the Ben Franklin Parkway. Along with the Whole Foods
there will be a CVS drugstore and a branch of the Thomas Jefferson
University Hospital. The new apartment complex will be extremely
walkable, Center City, The Free Library and The Philadelphia Art Museum
will be just a few steps away. The 14 story Rodin Square will sit
northwest of the Rodin Museum where the area has changed dramatically in
the past few years. It will also be walkable to Callowhill Street which
in recent years has developed a small restaurant row with eateries such
as Sabrina’s Cafe, King of Tandoor Indian Restaurant, Doma, Kite &
Key, and the Rose Tattoo. Rodin Square will also be surrounded by the
Barnes and green ball fields, making this area very desirable.
other plans in the works that will be near the apartment complex. A
majestic Mormon temple is set to rise on 18th and Vine Streets and there
are plans underway to develop the abandon Family Court building into a
luxury hotel. The new project will include 293 luxury apartments,
underground parking for a 55,000 square foot Whole Foods, and a parking
garage for residents. This area was once a thriving industrial area
which was home to trucking companies, tool corporations and storage
businesses. Baldwin Locomotive Works which was the nations top
train-maker called this area home for many years as well. Today at 19th
and Hamilton stands the Matthias Baldwin Park which is green space
composed of interlocking levels of plants, trees, and jutting Stone
plinths. This area has seen an incredible transformation over the years
and with this new project which is schedule to take around two years to
finish will help the neighborhood continue to grow.
