Carson Concrete Constructs the Waterfront Square on Delaware River

For 38 years, Carson Concrete has completed more than 800 projects, providing quality work throughout the Philadelphia area. Under the guidance of founder Anthony Samango, Carson Concrete completed concrete framing and construction work for the Waterfront Square condominium complex overlooking the Delaware River.

Waterfront Square’s 1.3 million square feet of property consists of five buildings that range from 22 to 35 stories and house a total of 780 condominiums. Considered one of the most ambitious luxury real estate developments to emerge in Philadelphia within the last decade, Waterfront Square, which surrounds a three-acre park, features a diverse range of amenities, such as concierge services, washer and dryer hookups, a private clubhouse, a gated entry attended by a 24-hour doorman, a fitness center, and a swimming pool.

Positioned near the popular Northern Liberties neighborhood and the I-95 highway, Waterfront Square offers residents close proximity to some of Philadelphia’s most frequented shops and restaurants.

The Phillies New Ballpark Built By Carson Concrete

Over the past 35 years, Carson Concrete has finished over 800 jobs, placing millions of yards of concrete and more than 30 million square feet of formwork. Founded by Anthony Samango, Jr., Carson Concrete built the tallest building at the time in several cities, including Liberty One in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Main Street Center in Richmond, Virginia; and Merritt Towers in Baltimore, Maryland.

One of the company’s most impressive accomplishments is constructing a new ballpark for the Philadelphia Phillies. The 22-acre site required the placing of more than 60,000 cubic yards of concrete. The project required two and a half miles of 20-foot walls, 200,000 square feet of 20-foot-high concrete decks, and a two-foot-thick slab on grade that is 300,000 square feet in size.

Located on Pattison Avenue between Citizens Bank Way and Darien Street, the world-class ballpark opened on April 3, 2004. The first game featured the Phillies against the Cleveland Indians in an exhibition game. Since then, the Phillies have won a World Series title and two National League pennants.
