Plans in the works for 23-story tower in Chinatown

    The landscape in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia could be changing.

    PlanPhilly reported earlier this week the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation is hoping to build a 23-story residential and office tower at the northwest corner of Vine and 10th Streets.

    The building, which would take up two parcels, would include a community center on the ground floor.

    In a presentation to the city’s planning commission on Tuesday, developers outlined a plan that includes 15,000 square feet of office space and 144 apartments with a 23-car garage, according to PlanPhilly.
