Developer Wins Permit for Philadelphia Health Care Center
National Real Estate Development has received permits to begin construction of Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion, a 23-story medical and health care tower in Philadelphia’s Market East Center City, Philadelphia YIMBY reported on June 7. Its height, 364 ft, makes the Jefferson Health facility the tallest addition to the neighborhood in more than three decades. To allow for the large medical program, the building offers a fairly massive design holding about 750,000 ft2. Thomas Jefferson Specialty Care Pavilion is part of the two-tower East Market Phase 3 complex, the latest extension to the multi-block East Market development. Work is underway on the foundations and underground levels that will sit beneath both towers, but a timeline for the project’s completion was not reported.
