Foundation Underway at the Site of Formerly Planned Residential Tower at 1153 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City
Foundation work is underway for a residential building that was formerly planned at 1153 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City, as part of the East Market Phase 3 development. Developed by National Real Estate Development, the project is the latest phase of the East Market complex. The work is in progress on the west side of the project, where three stories of underground parking, capped with a public space, are currently planned, though the space may be replaced with a high-rise building in the future. The previous plan, designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, was proposed to stand at 329 feet and 24 stories tall, with an interesting terra cotta cladding.
