1601 Vine Street
|Location||1601 Vine Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States|
|Roof||375 ft (114 m)|
|Design and construction|
The Alexander is an intended mixed-use high-rise in the Pennsylvanian city of Philadelphia, presently under construction. The building is adjacent to the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple, which was designed by Perkins+Will. This project will consist of one tower, as well as a Mormon meetinghouse next to the building, which will be clad in red brick.
The tower will be approximately 375 feet in height. The tower will contain roughly 260 apartments, as well as retail and townhouses around the base. The project will include a public garden space and improve traffic flow on Wood Street.
1601 Vine was originally to host a building unrelated to the temple complex, but that project was cancelled when funding could not be obtained.
