Center City West is a section of Center City located roughly between 21st, Chestnut, and Arch streets and the Schuylkill River. For decades, the neighborhood was comprised primarily of parking lots, yet in recent years the area has been on the rise with a large number of projects that have recently been completed, underway, and proposed. The largest developments that have originally been completed in the neighborhood are the PECO Building, completed in 1970, and the Aramark Headquarters which renovated the structure of an existing building at 2400 Market Street in 2019. With Aramark relocating its headquarters to the neighborhood, the company saw the potential of the area’s growth. 2222 Market Street, the first development of the new construction wave was revealed in 2019, and is currently underway.
2300-24 Market Street
A surge of development in Center City West is poised to change the neighborhood in the near future. One of these additions is the recently redesigned proposal at 2300-24 Market Street. The original plan was more massive and held residential space, and would have risen 202 feet and 14 stories high. The original iteration was designed by Tantillo Architecture and developed by Lubert-Alder, but now KieranTimberlake and Breakthrough Properties have collaborated to bring the new iteration. The building will now stand at a noticeably shorter height, with a confirmed floor count of nine floors, along with the buildings purpose shifting to office and lab space. Today we share YIMBY’s own skyline massings of the development.
Center City West is seeing a surge in construction, where one of the more notable developments is an overbuild proposed at 2300-24 Market Street.
