The Clark is a new multi-family residential development in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia. Consisting of six stories, the 238,000 SF U-shaped building includes 327 units and 92 parking spots. Dedicated charging stations for electric vehicles, 154 parking spots for bicycles, and proximity to Philadelphia’s Market-Frankford El line, means that residents will have many options for transit. The development shares a block with the historic West Catholic Preparatory High School, and includes subtle architectural features of color and texture to pay tribute to the neighboring building’s aesthetic using a contemporary palette.
The project includes many street trees, as well as a public pocket park along Chestnut Street. The park serves as both welcome open garden space for the neighborhood, and as an amenity for the building’s residents. Additional amenities include a fitness studio, co-working space, a game room, interior bike storage, and a rooftop patio.
