May 07, 2021

ENR MidAtlantic has released its Top Starts from 2020 and we are excited to share that 2222 Market Street made the list!
2222 Market Street broke ground on September 21, 2020 and launched the next generation of Philadelphia commercial real estate. The building will serve as the new founding office for Morgan Lewis & Bockius. The tower will rise 282 feet and 19 stories tall, making it one of the tallest structures in the area. Its stacked-box design will allow it to stand out at its prominent location on Market Street.
The new building benefits from its unparalleled location in the heart of Philadelphia’s central business district, offering close proximity to shopping, dining, and area attractions such as City Hall and the new Comcast headquarters in addition to unmatched commuter access with Suburban Station, 30th Street Station, and the 22nd Street trolley station all within walking distance.
Designed by Gensler, 2222 Market will feature 10’ high ceilings throughout with floor-to-ceiling glass, multiple outdoor terrace amenities, flexible workspace planning, fitness center, and conference center. The building is specifically designed to have an extraordinarily light carbon footprint and will be seeking LEED-CS Gold and Fitwell certifications.
Construction started in September 2020 and is scheduled to be completed by August 2022.
