Urby Fishtown

Urby Fishtown is a 5-story, state-of-the-art apartment building featuring 204 units over 3 commercial spaces with an additional 5,264 square feet for amenities. The building amenities are second to nothing else in the Fishtown area of Philadelphia.  The ground floor commercial spaces will boast floor-to-ceiling windows while the upper floors highlight large, industrial-styled windows. The construction includes the development of a full city block of Front Street.  The building is located directly next to the Philadelphia elevated rail line referred to as the “El” which makes the logistics of the site complicated.  Crane work and excavation are performed with extreme caution.
