A new luxury condo development in Brush Park has just passed another milestone. The condos at CODA are now up for pre-sale, ranging from $550,000 up to $1.75 million. Two out of the ten condos have been reserved.
Oombra Architects have worked with the developer Michael van Overbeke for the past few years on the design. The timber-frame design is built over and around an existing brick structure in Brush Park, along John R near Alfred. The design was inspired by The Tree in Bergen Norway, IM Pei’s glass pyramid at The Louvre, and the international style of Le Corbusier. The brick carriage house will be home to a two-story restaurant, with ten condos above, commercial office space, and a parking structure in back.
The condos feature floor-to-ceiling glass, terraces, and a mass timber frame. Each one is unique: the Townhomes span 3,000 square feet over three floors, with their own rooftop terraces while the condos, or the Residences, range in size from 1,132 to 3,250 square feet over one or two levels. The development has separate rooms owners can buy for their own gym or office space.
The condos are listed through Todd Sykes at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices | The Loft Warehouse.
At this point, the city has granted preliminary approval, with construction documents due in September. The NEZ district is in place, and the team is on track for a groundbreaking by the end of the year.
Oombra Architects earned recognition for the design from the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2020.
This is one of numerous developments planned and/or built in Brush Park over the last five years. Condos, townhouses, and apartment buildings in City Modern have been completed, mainly between John R and Brush St., with a few more buildings underway. We've seen construction activity at Patterson Terrace at John R and Erskine. Numerous homes have been redeveloped, including the Henry Glover House. Brush 8 will bring more townhouses at Brush and Watson, with a larger apartment building across the street.
