Philadelphia, PA (Apr. 27, 2021) — Newmark Real Estate (“Newmark”) announced that it has been awarded the leasing assignment for 1500 Market Street–1.87 million-square-foot office complex in the heart of downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The property’s two office towers, the East and West, are 36- and 42-stories, respectively. 1500 Market Street space availabilities represent the largest high-rise block of office space currently available for lease in Philadelphia. Newmark Senior Managing Director Jack Soloff and Executive Managing Director Craig Scheuerle are representing the leasing for landlord, Nightingale Properties and Wafra Capital Partners Inc.
The office asset is highly accessible by either car or public transportation, featuring a 450-space private, covered parking garage and direct concourse access to SEPTA regional rail lines and PATCO high speed line.
“1500 Market Street’s central and easily accessible location, proximity to public transportation and access to abundant dedicated parking make it an incredibly competitive property,” said Jack Soloff. “The contiguous block of available space on the upper floors, the largest available in Philadelphia, will provide potential tenants with tremendous views of Philadelphia–City Hall, Dilworth Park and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.”
The property recently underwent full renovations, including updates to building lobbies, courtyard and elevators. Additionally, 1500 Market Street features staffed FedEx/UPS transaction counters; on-site daycare, on-site banking services and options for on-site coffee.
