The Naked Philly blog took an in-depth look at our projects in the developing West Poplar neighborhood, both the Poplar building, which transformed an abandoned warehouse into truly stunning apartments, and our upcoming project, The Darien, which just received zoning approvals.
The article looks at the transformation of the former Quaker Building, a 400,00 square-foot warehouse, into The Poplar, an award-winning adaptive reuse apartment complex developed by Post Brothers. The renovations preserved the building’s unique historical character, while also offering contemporary amenities.
Additionally, Naked Philly dives into our next project in the neighborhood, The Darien, which recently received zoning approvals. Comprised of two mid-rise buildings along Poplar and North 8th Streets, this project will feature 212 residential units, 6,000 square-feet of retail space, and a 12,000-square-foot roof deck, and ground-floor parking. Both buildings consist of brick, porcelain, granite, metal panels, copper screening, glass balconies and large, angular windows. The longest of the two structures is split into two separate buildings connected by a series of sky bridges at the northern and southern portions that overlook the courtyard.
