Dollar Tree va- cated the property earlier this year, creating an availability that will be sought after by the large number of retailers that are intent on establishing a foothold in Philadelphia’s downtown. The seller of the properties was represented by James Galbally of JLL . “This part of Center City is truly a live-work-play urban core, and high-end retailers are clamoring to gain access,” said Hope. “While Walnut Street has long been a retail hotspot, the demand for space in this section of the city has led to high-quality retail op- tions along many of the neigh- boring corridors, with the most notable being Chestnut Street.” n
