The Mormon Temple, community center and apartment complex located on the 1600 and 1700 blocks of Vine Street represent a $300 million-dollar investment in the heart of the Philadelphia’s Logan Square section. According to Philadelphia Magazine, “no expense was spared in the erection of the Temple” co-designed by Philadelphia’s BLT Architects.
Pennsylvania holds a special place in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as Founder, Joseph Smith, was baptized in the Susquehanna River. BFW worked with LF Driscoll to provide construction safety for the development of the Temple, Community Center and, the 32-story, 400,000 square foot apartment building located at 1601 Vine Street. This $120 million-dollar building includes 258 market-rate apartments and 13 townhomes.
