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.
