East Market Project to Begin This Summer
NREA Development Services, SSH Real Estate, Classic Management, Inc., and JOSS Realty Partners, LLC have teamed up to develop the $230 million first stage of East Market, a mixed-use development for the 1100 block of Market Street, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported on March 20.

The plans call for leveling the entire block, beginning this summer, in order to build two new retail buildings topped with apartments. Later, existing buildings south of Market will be renovated.

Retail stores are planned for the first floor of the nearby 12-story Girard office building, with the upper floors upgraded for office, hotel, or apartments, the article noted.

The development would help create an important connection between Independence National Historic Park and the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The entire project is estimated at $500 million and the architect is BLT.
