While the greater share of Philadelphia’s new developments are rising on the western side of Center City, the east side of the city is raising its profile, as well. In Market East, a steel beast is rising at 1101 Chestnut Street as part of the Jefferson Health expansion. Designed by Ennead Architects and Stantec developed by National Real Estate Development, he Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion will stand 372 feet and 23 stories tall.
Another tower was supposed to join the Jefferson tower to the west at 1153 Chestnut Street, but the proposal is currently on hold, and a public park will take its place for the time being.
The foundation that was planned for the two towers had the work start all the way back in November 2019 when it was announced that demolition would start on the garage at the site. By January 2021, excavation was complete and the foundation was heavily underway in the next month with the cranes installed in April. In June of the same year, the basement floors of the tower was underway, with the steel structure starting to rise above ground in August. The tower reached the halfway point in November as it was also appearing in the skyline.
