    An affiliate of Carl Marks & Co. is looking to construct a large apartment complex fronting the Delaware River.

    A property along the Delaware River waterfront that had many bold ambitions that never came to fruition is back at trying to make progress.

    It’s not Penn’s Landing.

    Carl Marks & Co. is looking to revive a version of plans it created in 2002 to develop a massive residential project called Renaissance Plaza on 5.3 acres that front the Delaware River at Columbus Boulevard and Callowhill Street and had been known for the last 15 years as the future address of the Greater Philadelphia World Trade Center.

    The dense project would include 1,342 apartments in four buildings that range in height from 21 to 31 stories. Plans also include 16 townhouses, nearly 70,000 square feet of retail space, 653 parking spaces along with more than an acre of landscaped public plazas. Read more about this story on
