Cramp Shipbuilding Lofts

Philadelphia Waterfront

Planned construction and rehabilitation of historic Cramp Ship Building on the Philadelphia waterfront, a 460′ x 120′ x 80′ tall industrial building. The site was one of the oldest naval yards in the country, founded in 1830 by William Cramp, and was the preeminent U.S. iron shipbuilder of the late 19th century. The preservation and renovation of this site with mixed-use development would jumpstart the transformation into a lively and energetic neighborhood. By integrating sustainable design with a historic Philadelphia building, the plan connects the past and the present to create new and revived communities along the city waterfront.

The development is phased into two stages; Phase One includes the renovation and conversion of the original building into 162 apartment units with parking. Phase Two is the new construction of a residential tower with 260 apartment units and commercial space on the ground level.
