Society Hill Civic Association is hosting a meeting regarding the proposed 31-story, 273-unit development slated for 1 Dock St, currently the Sheraton Hotel. The new units would be a residential addition to the hotel, which sits across from Society Hill Towers, so there is already a precedent for high-density housing in this area.
See the Inquirer's coverage for project details.
This project is permitted by-right, but Society Hill Civic Association is appealing the already-approved units on this 2-acre site for all the standard reasons (density, height, views, etc). We believe this is an ideal use of this space, and is an appropriate level of density given the proximity of the property to Center City and waterfront amenities.
This meeting is just the first step in what will be an ongoing campaign by Philly YIMBY around Society Hill zoning remapping, which kicks off this fall in one of the richest and most notoriously change-resistant neighborhoods in the city.
Please consider coming out to this meeting and voicing your support for this project! After the meeting we'll head to the Khyber for drinks to debrief and talk next steps for organizing.
