702-706 Madison Avenue is a former 3 story building that was demolished and replaced with a 5-floor retail space. The new building will be connected to a restored 1920s bank. The building design was approved by the Landmarks Commission in 2014. Adler Windows joined the project in 2015 to supply and install clad double hung windows and french outswing doors.
According to PACA, this particular block of Madison Avenue originally featured a row of identical houses until their stoops were removed in 1922 to widen the street. The two corner row houses were demolished and replaced by a Neo-Federal style bank in 1921, designed by Frank Eaton Newman, a prominent Philadelphia architect. The adjacent remaining row houses were partially demolished and remained a two-story taxpayer until purchased by JP Morgan Chase Bank. The row house, at 22 East 63rd Street was demolished in 1937 purchased by the bank. The assembled parcel has been reconfigured with a restored bank building at the corner flanked by new infill that is sympathetic in scale and character to the context and landmarked bank. The proposed use will be approximately 38,000 square feet for a flagship retailer.
COMPLETION IS EXPECTED TO BE EARLY 2018
