RISMEDIA, August 15, 2008-While other developers continue to pull back on new residential development projects, there is one Philadelphia developer that is pushing full speed ahead. Petoni Construction recently broke ground on Siena Place-a master-planned community featuring 313 three-story brick luxury townhomes. The new residential community will rise on a long-vacant, formerly City-owned 30-acre land parcel in South Philadelphia’s Packer Park neighborhood. Siena Place will continue the revitalization of this South Philadelphia community and usher in a new era of refined city living that fuses history and culture with style and personality.
“Siena Place exemplifies our administration’s commitment to revitalizing existing neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia,” says Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter. “New developments beautify our communities and create new jobs to attract new residents and tax dollars, and other positive benefits. Siena Place is an outstanding addition to our Packer Park neighborhood, and I look forward to its opening later this year.”
Donna Bartynski, president of Petoni Construction and developer of Siena Place, says, “We are proud to play such an integral role in the revitalization of the Packer Park neighborhood. At Siena Place, residents will live the ultimate South Philadelphia lifestyle. No where else in America can you find such unique character, culture, history, and ambience.”
Siena Place stands on a former naval barracks site and was purchased from the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) on a mission to transform the once desolate neighborhood into a panorama of exquisite homes and abundant green space.
Siena Place will bring a neighbor-friendly community to Packer Park with attached garages in the rear of homes to minimize traffic outside residents’ front doors. The neighborhood will also include criss-cross sidewalks and ample grassy areas that flank the residences to bring the community together.
Light is a crucial architectural detail of Siena Place, with each townhome’s exterior lined with large windows. The brick and sandstone façades have distinctive detailing that establishes an individual character for each home, while maintaining a uniform appearance for the community.
Each residence will include two and up to three levels of living space and residents can choose from four spacious floor plans, customizable by layout and architectural style. Residences feature three to five bedrooms, with walk-in closets and three baths. Formal living and dining rooms to accommodate large gatherings of family and friends. Finely appointed kitchens include hardwood floors, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. And every unit has a private deck or yard.
Residences at Siena Place start in the mid $400s. Decorated models are scheduled to open in September.
