1600 Callowhill Apartments
Hunter Roberts provided construction management services which included preconstruction for the interior and exterior renovation, and amenity overbuild of an historic, 6-story office building into 100 new market rate apartments. 1600 Callowhill Street is a reinforced concrete building faced in brick and terra cotta. It was the former site of the Middishade Clothing Factory, also known as C.C. Knight Factory, and was placed on the National Register for Historic Places when the factory closed in 1986. The building is located in the rapidly developing Spring Garden neighborhood of Philadelphia and was most recently leased by the Department of Homeland Security.
The project scope included a complete gut of interior finishes, reconfiguration of floor plate including relocation of elevators and stair towers; new MEP systems; overbuild construction for additional floor and rooftop amenities; window replacement; and façade repairs. The scope included 2,623 SF of ground floor corner retail space.
