From the late 19th century through the first half of the 20th century, Market Street east of City Hall was dominated by retail uses, including several of Philadelphia-based department stores. For many years the site was the home of Snellenburg’s department store. East Market will bring new life to Center City Philadelphia with an exciting, vibrant mixed-use project, highlighted by large format digital signage along Market Street.
