Earlier this month, YIMBY shared the news of topping-out of the Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City, one of the most prominent buildings currently rising into the Philadelphia skyline. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec and developed by Jefferson Health and National Real Estate Development, with LF Driscoll and Hunter Roberts Construction Group joint venture acting as contractors, the building comprises the bulk of East Market Phase 3, the final component of the mixed-use, multi-block East Market development. As of February 1st, the steel-framed structure has officially reached its final height of 364 feet and 23 stories (19 stories if excluding mechanical floors). The $762 million medical facility will be the single largest real estate investment in Jefferson’s nearly 200-year history and will offer ample cutting-edge equipment. Today YIMBY offers a detailed overview of the momentous event.
The Comcast Technology Center at 1800 Arch Street in Center City is both the tallest building and one of the largest structures in Philadelphia, standing 1,121 feet tall and spanning over 1.5 million square feet of interior space. Completed in 2017, the supertall stands 60 stories high and features office space on its lower floors and a hotel on its upper levels, with an observation deck at the top. The project was developed by Liberty Property Trust and designed by Foster and Partners, with Thornton Tomasetti behind the structural design and LF Driscoll as the contractor. Gensler crafted the exquisite and sometimes bizarre interior of the main lobby, with an architectural style well-suited for the modern workforce and the general public alike. In this feature, Philadelphia YIMBY observes the east lobby of the Comcast Technology Center which is open to the employees and the public at limited times.

The structure is part of the two-tower East Market Phase 3 complex, which is the latest extension to the multi-block East Market development. Philly YIMBY covered the project in extensive detail in a recent feature article.
