Homes proposed to ring Mt. Sinai get a new look

Back in January, we brought you the update to the redevelopment proposal for the former Mount Sinai Hospital located at 4th and Reed Streets. After meeting with the neighborhood and taking their parking and design concerns in to consideration, Barton Partners and developer Gagan Lakhmna added a parking garage and decided to lower the town home component from four-stories to three to better fit with the surrounding built environment.

According to Philly.com, the town homes are also getting a redesign and construction on the town homes could “begin in the next few weeks.” Lahkmna is still looking to obtain historic tax credits to begin work on the main hospital building, which is proposed to house upwards of 200 apartments.

Savage said that developer Gagan Lakhmna agreed to incorporate several changes to the plan, but Savage said he’d rather wait to detail the changes until the ZBA releases its decision, which is probably at least a week away. The plan’s most recent iteration included 198 apartments, 38 townhomes, one retail space and a garage with 210 parking spaces.
