Philadelphia — The Goldenberg Group has topped off View II, a $199 million student housing development located near Temple University in Philadelphia.
Construction on the project began last fall. The 471,000-square-foot property will feature 984 beds within one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units. Community amenities will include a 24-hour concierge; a coffee bar; fitness center with rooms for fitness on-demand, yoga and spin; an outdoor rooftop terrace; a social activities area; a business center; study and conference areas; a package locker system; sky lounge; indoor bicycle storage and on-site resident parking, including dedicated car sharing spaces and electric charging spaces.
Additionally, the property will offer 20,000 square feet of ground-level retail, restaurant and commercial space. The project is designed to complement The View at Montgomery, the company’s existing 832-bed student housing property. This is the second and final phase of Goldenberg’s master-planned redevelopment of the 4.6-acre site of the former John Wanamaker High School. The first phase opened in August 2014. The new development is slated for completion in summer 2019, in time for fall semester occupancy.
