CEDARS VILLAGE is located in the Italian Market neighborhood of South Philadelphia. The community makes use of an unusual urban flag lot to provide needed affordable housing.
The building features a 3-story design along Ellsworth Street matching the scale of the neighborhood. A 5-story rear wing includes structured parking on the first floor, along with amenity spaces. Particular attention was given to the entry sequence, scale, and the community space. The community spaces are centered on a private interior courtyard, which provides a buffer from the surrounding city.
