The Isle Apartments
Philadelphia, PA

Project Description:

This 215,000 SF, 156-unit residential complex sits on a 3-acre site located on Manayunk’s Venice Island. The 165,000 SF of apartment space includes a mix of 119 one-BR / one-Bath units and 37 two-BR / two-Bath units. A select number of first floor units feature balconies. The first floor of the building includes a spacious lobby, billiards club room, fitness center and management offices.

The four-story wood structure stands atop a 50,000 SF cast-in-place concrete garage (filigree system), founded on driven piles and concrete caps beneath which are 104 parking spaces at ground level; the entire property has 193 parking spaces for private tenant use.  A 130-foot-long, prefabricated steel pedestrian bridge reaches over the adjacent Manayunk Canal, railroad and bike trail connecting the ISLE directly to Manayunk’s Main Street.  TN Ward’s value engineering effort produced a 30% savings below bid pricing based on the original design.
