A new 18-story glass tower, named The Nest at 1324 N. Broad St, recently broke ground and will provide Temple University students and young professionals with 192 apartment units. The building will offer studio, two-, and three-bedroom apartments located above ground floor commercial space and second floor amenities.

The Nest at 1324 N. Broad St. will combine contemporary architecture and a community-minded exterior to create a housing option that connects its residents to the surrounding neighborhood. The façade will be composed of a metal and glass window wall system while brownstone piers will demarcate the separate retail entrance and reflect the materials of the adjacent New Freedom Theatre.

A landscaped garden will engage the street and a cantilever featuring a marquee will provide cover along the path from Broad Street to the residential lobby entrance. An outdoor garden court will offer outdoor seating and can be used by residents and patrons of the ground floor commercial space. On the south side of the building, a rain garden will collect rainwater runoff.

The completed apartments will come fully furnished and provide access to the building’s amenities, such as an outdoor terrace with a fire pit, a game lounge, an event lounge, a fitness center, a tech center, and four study lounges. Indoor bicycle parking will also be provided on the first floor.

The building, which was designed by Cecil Baker + Partners and developed by Bock Development Group, is slated for completion in August 2019.
