The View at Montgomery is part of the Wannamaker Plaza, a mixed-use, privately owned student housing development adjacent to Temple’s campus. The new 310,000 sf 14-story student residence includes 238 apartments. The remediated brownfield site has excellent community connectivity with a 34% stormwater runoff reduction and 90% pollutants removed via subsurface infiltration basin and inlet traps. Student amenities include study lounges, computer lounges, top-floor Sky Lounge with floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of downtown Philadelphia, fitness pavilion and two acres of open green space, as well as a street-level restaurant sourcing environmentally-friendly ingredients. The project achieved LEED Silver certification.
