Phase One of East Market Celebrates Grand Opening East Market revitalizes an entire city block, from Market to Chestnut, 11th to 12th Streets

P H I L A D E L P H I A , PA — The Harman Group (THG) , a firm specializing in structural en- gineering and parking plan- ning and design, is pleased to announce the grand opening for the first phase of East Market, a 4.3 acre mixed-use development that will revi- talize an entire city block in Center City, Philadelphia. The $260 million Phase One redevelopment includes The Ludlow, a 322 unit luxury mixed-use residential tower, two, two-story retail podiums totaling 130,000 s/f, renova- tion of a mixed use office building and construction of below grade parking with a centralized loading dock to service the entire site. The Harman Group pro- vided structural engineering, adaptive reuse, and parking consulting services for the project, which was developed by National Real Estate Development, LLC and de- signed by BLT Architects. Tutor Perini Corporation served as the construction manager. Throughout the design pro- cess for the steel framed development, The Harman Group was tasked with ac- commodating both the exist- ing buildings on the site’s south side and the SEPTA subway tunnel on the north side. The need for parking, retail, and residential units within one structure required careful coordination with the architect to optimize a single structural column grid that would accommodate all three uses while minimizing costly column transfers, allowing for optimization of the program- ming. “East Market is a very com- plex project, with a number of structural solutions needed to maximize each space,” said Chris Gottschall , associate and senior project engineer at The Harman Group. “The Harman Group’s extensive experience in designing struc- tures suited for urban life allowed us to find creative solutions to stack residential, retail and parking layouts across both the podium sys- tem and tower system while still being cost effective.” The first phase of the de- velopment also included the adaptive reuse of the mixed- use office building at 34 S 11th St., which opened earlier

this year and includes MOM’s Organic Market, Design Cen- ter, and architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson . “As we officially open East Market, we're happy to have partnered with The Harman Group on this transforma- tive project for Center City Philadelphia," said Daniel Killinger , managing direc- tor, National Development. "We have relied on them to be a key member of this project since its inception and from groundbreaking to ribbon- cutting, they have been. It's been a terrific partnership." 
