Rodin Square

“… a very good solution for a very difficult problem.” — Philadelphia Art Commission


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Rodin Square is an exciting mixed-use project in the heart of downtown Philadelphia that is anchored by a 60,000-square foot flagship Whole Foods Market for which MC+A was the interior architect. The project features a myriad of uses including a high-rise tower containing 303 luxury rental units-all of which feature a floor to ceiling windows and upgraded amenities. Apartments are contained within an elegant Z-shaped nine-story form, simple in window pattern yet elegantly detailed. The residential section includes 12,000 square feet of amenity areas and a nearly one-acre roof terrace featuring dramatic views of the city skyline. Along with Whole Foods, there is an additional 20,000 square feet of retail that includes a pharmacy, a bank, and an outpatient facility for a local hospital. The street retail uses a generous number of storefronts that, along with the blends of warm brick tones, allows the retail spaces to engage the street and sidewalk users in a friendly way.

Rodin Square also includes below-grade and above-grade structured parking (five tiers) totaling 490 spaces. The above-grade parking is clad in perforated metal panels of varying colors that add dramatic visual interest to the mass.
