Upcoming community meeting to discuss plans for Mt. Sinai
We told you earlier this month about the new plans to demolish Mt. Sinai instead of redeveloping the site. Dickinson Square West Civic Association’s meeting on Tuesday will further discuss the plans for the site at 4th and Reed with the project’s developer.
The meeting is being held in order for the public to voice their opinions and make suggestions of what they’d like to see at the location. Currently, the developers are planning to build row-homes on the site.
The meeting is being held on Tuesday, February 17 at 7 p.m. at Mt. Moriah at 410 Wharton St.
The project is still in the planning stages now that the site will no longer be redeveloped. Previously, Mt. Sinai was set to become upwards of 200 apartments.
More on the new plans for the site from PlanPhilly:
Last night, representatives of Concordia Group, a Washington, D.C.-based development company, met with the Dickinson Square West Civic Association to present early plans for the development project set to replace Mt. Sinai Hospital, a landmark property at 4th and Reed streets. Ron Patterson, an attorney representing the developer, confirmed that the entire structure of Mt. Sinai is set to be demolished. It will be replaced with an unspecified number of single-family, attached rowhouses. Each home will have a garage in the rear. Patterson said that the homes will be built in a traditional brick design.
