High-end townhouse development planned across from Mormon meetinghouse

A development of 10 high-end townhouses is being planned at the current site of an industrial building at 17th and Wood Streets, just across the street to the north from the recently completed Mormon meetinghouse.

The homes are being designed by Philadelphia-based Atrium Design Group LLC and will be built by its construction affiliate A2Z Development, Atrium principal Shimi Zakin said in an interview Tuesday.

Each of the five-story, 5,100- to 5,800-square foot townhouses will include a three-car garage, elevator and a roof deck offering Center City views over the meetinghouse, according to a release. Pricing starts at $2.5 million.

The "NOVO Philly" project, as it's being marketed, is scheduled for groundbreaking in April, with the first homes expected to be ready spring 2018, according to the release.

Atrium's other area projects have included the newly constructed "The 7inSpire" townhouse development at 115-117 Church St. in Old City and renovations to developer Bart Blatstein's home beside Rittenhouse Square.
