Southern Land Co. has started construction on another luxury residential tower in downtown Philadelphia. The developer recently topped out The Laurel Rittenhouse Square in September, but has already broke ground on 1620 Sansom St., its 320-foot tall luxury mixed-use tower nearby in Philadelphia’s Center City neighborhood.
Southern Land Co. is expecting to complete 1620 Sansom St., which was designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz, in winter 2023. The developer tapped Hunter Roberts Construction Group as the project’s general contractor and Faulkner Design Group as the interior designer. Southern Land Co. also used the city’s Mixed-Income Housing Bonus program to get an additional 75,000 square feet of residential space for the project, which resulted in a $2 million payment to the Philadelphia Housing Trust Fund.
