During the last two decades, Center City’s land-use has been dramatically diversified from a 9-to-5 office district to a thriving, mixed-use cosmopolitan center. These trends continued during 2020 and 2021 as investor and developer confidence remained strong, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.
Eleven major development projects, totaling 2.4 million square feet and valued at $1 billion, were completed between Fairmount and Washington avenues, river to river in 2020 and 2021. These projects include three hotels, three cultural projects, two residential mixed-use buildings, two public space projects and one school.
An additional 15 projects, representing $2.4 billion in investment, are currently under construction with three expected to finish by the end of 2021. Another 37 are proposed, still in the planning and permitting stages.
The interactive Developments map below allows you to sort Center City development projects that were just completed, under construction or still in the design or proposal phase.
