Clock Unknot Tower
A definite shame.
CREI is tanking. Their American Loft project is heading for a Sheriff's sale. And the office is mia.
From the Inquirer:
American Loft was to be the centerpiece of a booming real estate empire, an 11-story, 40-unit luxury condominium project at North American and Brown Streets in Northern Liberties.Unknot is not mentioned. But the writing is on the wall. CREI was to develop that project as well.
Now, the 63,000-square-foot, 21st century mid-rise designed by architect Winka Dubbeldam and looming over a hodgepodge of 19th-century rowhouses, warehouses, and vacant lots, is headed to Philadelphia sheriff's sale.
The developer is Gagandeep Lakhmna. His company is CREI - Creating Real Estate Innovations. American Loft is just one of his several projects under way or planned for Northern Liberties, where working-class grit meets urban chic these days and the future seems bright.
It appears, however, that most of Lakhmna's other projects will not be built, including Q Tower, a 13-story, 24-unit condo building at Second and Spring Garden Streets also designed by Dubbeldam.
Very disappointing. Both Q and Unknot deserve to be built.
Time to make a few calls.
Who will be Unknot's knight in shining armor?
