Located in the Italian Market neighborhood of South Philadelphia, this 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, and a 5-story rear wing with structured parking on the first floor, along with amenity spaces.

Particular attention was given to the entry sequence and the community space, which is centered on a private courtyard  buffered from the surrounding city.
