The Matson Mill project is located at downtown Conshohocken adjacent to a SEPTA regional rail station which provides the daily commute to downtown Philadelphia. The new development consists of one residential apartment building constructed on top of a structured parking garage. Residential buildings are four stories of 5A construction above the steel frames parking structural, 1A construction. The project site is geographically defined by the tracks of Manayunk/Norristown line to the north, Schuylkill River to the south, framed by the Fayette Street Bridge to the west. The 426,000 sf building provides 276 market-rate apartments and parking podium with 310 parking spaces.
Matson Mill is one of the architectural landmarks that draw visual focus and pedestrian access to the river. The exterior architecture bridges the local mill buildings along the Schuylkill River to reflect the rich historic context, while providing modern exterior details to stay true as a new development. With the scenic view of Schuylkill on the south, the building layout takes the advantage of all outdoor amenities overlooking the river, and the finger-shape building maximizes views from resident units. The building’s adjacency to the commuter rail station, as well as its shape, give a sense of arrival to the open space between.
