MMPartners acquired St. Joseph’s Hospital in an off-market transaction. This once vacant 125,500 SF building in the Francisville neighborhood, Philadelphia has now been transformed into The Civic, which has begun leasing as of December 2018.

It sat on a 74,655 SF, or 1.71-acre parcel of land, which equated to a 1.68 floor-area-ratio (“FAR”).  It was zoned RM4, which “by right” allows for a maximum (“FAR”) ratio of 3.50.  As such, “by right” the site allows for a buildable square footage of 261,293 SF, of which 135,793 SF remains able to be developed. The property is five (5) stories, with floor plates averaging approximately 25,100 SF.
