Project DescriptionEvo at Cira Centre South is a new off-campus residential Tower located in University City. The Tower extends the Cira skyline on the western bank of the Schuylkill River. University City derives its name from the presence of colleges, universities, health systems and think tanks, and is the neighborhood west of Philadelphia’s Central Business District.
The project offers a new housing option on a challenging site within walking distance to retail, residential, mass transportation and university facilities and features attractively furnished units with bed-bath parity. It includes a broad array of high-end appointments including a roof top swimming pool, media lounge and a 24-hour fitness center. However, the Tower is more than a place to sleep, eat and enjoy the wealth of amenities expected in a contemporary residential tower. This Tower is a critical component providing supportive, human-scaled residential communities. Smartly located Public Squares are hubs of intellectual, social and recreational activity that stand at the center of a college experience, bringing together students, faculty, staff and the general public to form shared communities within the larger context of the nearby campuses and the City of Philadelphia.
Dubbed one of the tallest student apartment buildings in the United States, evo at Cira South sets new standards for student urban apartment living and along with its one acre Sky Green as an added amenity, this project is in line to also establish new standards in sustainability and storm water management, targeting LEED Gold.
