The building is located in an area that is ready for an increase in new construction due to ample open space and development-ready properties. Developments at 2301 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, 33 North 22nd Street, 21M, and the already underway 2222 Market Street were revealed over the past year and a half, promising to elevate the skyline between the PECO Building and the Murano condominium. The only major site in the area remaining unbuilt and available for development is the parking lot at 2241 Market Street just to the south of the PECO Penn Substation.

Though not one of the city’s largest projects, the building will be a pleasant addition for the neighborhood and skyline.
