1101 Chestnut Street
Marking the final phase of the East Market development, 1101 Chestnut is a 19-story medical building for Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, centralizing an array of clinical services into a Specialty Care Pavilion for a seamless patient experience.
The estimated $762 million project will include a 462,000-square-foot medical office building, a block long, below-grade 300-space parking garage and an outdoor plaza. Upon completion in 2024, the building will include more than 300 exam rooms, 58 infusion chairs, 10 operating rooms, six endoscopy rooms, imaging and lab services, and a pharmacy. The design acknowledges the existing two-story bay architectural rhythms and also introduces a contemporary curved glass façade to represent Jefferson’s cutting-edge technologies. The siting of the new building preserves the original master plan intent and provides for the completion of Chestnut Walk from Market Street to Chestnut Street, and the continuation of ground floor retail and pedestrian activation. Ennead based in New York City is the architect for the tower and BLTa of Philadelphia is the architect for the sitework and below grade improvements.
