The trend of super-high-end homes in Logan Square seems to be continuing, as plans for eight new million-dollar plus four-story luxury custom town homes for 21st and Race Street next to the old Please Touch Museum, move onwards through the neighborhood process. You may recall, we originally brought this project to your attention back in May.
To be replaced
Developers and members of the Logan Square Neighborhood Association reached a tentative agreement for the site, located at 200 N. 21st St. at their September meeting. The project still needs ZBA approval. Before construction can begin, a two-story, former School District building at the site needs to be razed (but not the historically designated old Please Touch Museum). That could occur by the end of the year, with construction beginning possibly next spring.
But this ain't going anywhere
Plans call for each home to include a roof deck accessed by a penthouse style egress, and an elevator. While customization will make each home slightly different, the model is for a ground level den and two-car garage, with a living and dining room and kitchen on the second floor, two suites with baths or three bedrooms on the third, and a fourth floor master suite, according to representatives from Matzi Builder and Developers, based in Merion Station.
The developers said they plan to construct homes similar to the custom town homes along Race Street between 21st and 22nd Streets. They are the same developers responsible for Delancey Park View, the luxury townhomes located at 25th and Delancey Streets, and the Naudain Court townhomes, located on the 2400 block of Naudain Street, a block north of 24th and South Streets.
Homes on the 2100 block of Race
Though Rittenhouse is generally considered the high-rent district in Center City, it seems that Logan Square, with the proliferation of million dollar homes in recent years, isn’t so far behind. And likewise, it seems like the market for homes in this price range is quite healthy, which leads us to wonder where the next million dollar homes will rise.
