A tower crane has been erected at the Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street, which is part of the two-tower East Market Phase 3 development in Market East, Center City. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec and developed by Jefferson Health, the 372-foot-tall, 24-story building will stand on the east side of the block, next to the 329-foot residential high-rise at 1153 Chestnut Street that is planned as the second phase. The 712,000-square-foot tower will feature an attractive wavy glass façade with Jefferson logos at the top of the building.
The structure will expand on the extensive array of space that Jefferson Health already holds to the east of Broad Street, with the latest addition being the recently renovated Jefferson Center at 1101 Market Street.
The last update from February showed excavation for both towers as completed. Foundation work starting, with a large black crane on the Chestnut Street side of the site lifting rebar, and concrete being poured for the mat foundation. All of the soil has been removed from the site, including the ramp that ran from the bottom of the east side of the site to South 11th Street.
The red tower crane was erected around two weeks ago. More rebar and concrete has also been observed at the site, along with concrete forms for the foundation. The building may rise above ground level by the end of summer.
Both towers are scheduled for completion in June 2023.

A great location!!
One of my personal favs.
Definitely looking out for this one!!
With the steel starting to take shape, I wonder when the concrete core will begin.
Before you know it, the east side will begin to have some quality towers offering views all around with some (much needed) density!!
I agree with Brian’s comment above.
The Market East neighborhood has always been hit or miss at the street level in my opinion. There are buildings with incredible historical character and blocks that bustle with activity. And then there are dead zones and blocks/buildings that offer little to nothing. So every time you replace a dead areas with something this good, it elevates the whole area. This is that type of project. The impact on the skyline will be meaningful, too.
Just an added thought to this conversation, the Market-Frankford line serves the east side with stops every 2-3 blocks, serving the needs of this area.
That is the butter for your potatoes right there!
