Construction Update: The Dane


Construction is moving forward quickly at The Dane in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This week, the apartment building’s model units are nearing completion. The apartments will feature vinyl plank flooring, ceramic tile and top of the line appliances and fixtures.

Drywall and painting are underway on floors 2-5, and MEP rough-in has been completed in the building’s lobby and basement. Finishes are being installed on floors 16-18, including cabinets, flooring and light fixtures. The middle floors are in various stages of construction and are moving forward quickly.

Outside, The Dane’s newly updated pool has been excavated and new piping is complete. A new retaining wall is being constructed.

W.S. Cumby is providing merit shop construction management services for the renovation and repositioning of The Dane (formerly Penn Wynn House), an 18-story apartment building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The scope of work for this project includes a complete restoration of the building’s historic exterior, including masonry repair and new windows. The interior underwent selective demolition and renovation into 231 luxury apartments. New electrical and mechanical systems will be installed throughout the building. Amenities will include a gym, dog park, social lounge, pool, and a 4,000 SF rooftop deck with uninterrupted views of the Philadelphia skyline. The property is ideally located directly adjacent to a regional rail line, providing access to Center City Philadelphia in only ten minutes.

This project will be completed in Summer 2019.
