Project Overview & Tour
Thursday, June 27 | 8:30 a.m.
Meet: Lobby of 1100 Ludlow Street
East Market has already added two major apartment buildings, 130,000 sq. ft of retail and restaurant space and a new civic open space along Market Street East. Join us for a “Behind the Scenes” tour of the conversion of the historic Stephen Girard Building into a unique boutique hotel.
The 13-story granite and terracotta Stephen Girard Building was built at the turn of the 19th century in the Beaux-Arts style. It was designed as an office building and remained in use as such until April 2019 and is currently being renovated into a unique and iconic hotel carrying the Canopy by Hilton flag. The hotel, will contain up to 236 guestrooms and provide guests with an unparalleled experience with best-in-class service, unique and timeless design paying homage to the historical significance of the building while providing all the modern-day amenities. NRED is working with local architecture firm BLTa, Hunter Roberts Construction Group and AvroKo interior designers on this project. The hotel will be a central part of National Real Estate Development’s large mixed-use East Market project, a destination that connects some of Philadelphia’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
Hear from Marshall French, Development Manager, Bill McDowell, Director, Development and Matthew Morettini, Construction Manager of National Real Estate Development about the project and its impact on East Market.
Space is limited due to event logistics and is available to members on a first-come-first served basis.
