State of Center City:
Attracting More Businesses Downtown
Tuesday, April 25, 8:30 AM
The Union League
140 South Broad Street
In 2015 and 2016 more than 20% of all office leasing activity downtown came from tenants moving in from outside Philadelphia. Some relocations have been large, while most newcomers to the Philadelphia market have leased small or gateway offices to access the educated workers who live in Greater Center City. The latest example: Malvern-based Vanguard Group announcement of a 16,000-sf innovation center at 2300 Chestnut Street.
While renewals continue in Philadelphia’s Class A space, older buildings and locations east of Broad also are demonstrating renewed appeal. How can Philadelphia build on these trends?
Come to the release of CPDC/CCD’s annual State of Center City report and hear from a panel on why companies are choosing to locate downtown and what the City of Philadelphia is doing to capitalize on this trend.
New Speakers Added:
Harold Epps, Director of Commerce, City of Philadelphia
Lisha Davis, Innovation Strategy, Vanguard
Wayne L. Fisher, LEED AP, Executive Managing Director, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank
Paul R. Levy, Executive Director, CPDC: Release of the State of Center City report
