Permits have been issued for the construction of the Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion at 1101-53 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City. Developed by National Real Estate Development, the structure will rise 364 feet and 23 stories tall, becoming the tallest addition to the neighborhood in more than three decades. The interior will hold 750,000 square feet of space, most of which will be allocated for medical use by Jefferson Health. 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.

In the late 1980s, in rapid succession, a series of skyscrapers broke through the long-held “Gentlemen’s Agreement” that unofficially restricted Philadelphia’s buildings from rising above the 548-foot-tall pinnacle of City Hall, creating the now-iconic skyline of Center City. While the skyscraper cluster transformed the area to the west of City Hall, the Market East district to the east continues to lag behind in terms of an imposing skyline. However, East Market Phase 3, developed by National Real Estate Development as part of the East Market complex and currently under construction at 1101-53 Chestnut Street, will boost the local skyline with a pair of towers rising 364 and 288 feet tall. The buildings will bring one million square feet of medical office, residential, and retail space to the neighborhood, and add a sizable public plaza. Today we take a detailed look at the transformative project.
A second tower crane has been erected at East Market Phase 3, the two-tower project under construction at 1101 Chestnut Street and 1153 Chestnut Street in Market East, Center City, two blocks to the south of Reading Terminal Market. The 372-foot Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion was designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec, and the 329-foot residential tower to the east is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects. The Jefferson building will have a wavy glass exterior, while the other tower will be clad with glass and orange terracotta with rounded edges. National Real Estate Group is the developer for the project.
At number 12 on Philly YIMBY’s Annual Development Countdown is the Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion, a 372-foot-tall, 24-story tower underway at 1101 Chestnut Street in the rapidly growing Market East neighborhood in Center City. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec and developed by National Realty Corp., the sleek glass tower will bring a modern presence to the area and feature over 426,000 square feet of medical office space, which will be occupied by Jefferson Health. The building is part of the two-tower East Market Phase 3 project, which will also feature a 329-foot-tall, 25-story residential tower at 1153 Chestnut Street to the west. Philly YIMBY’s recent site visit revealed that excavation is almost complete for the 712,000-square-foot-plus complex.
