It’s with little frequency Philadelphia experiences a ground breaking for a new office building let alone one in the middle of global pandemic but, in a city of firsts, that is what took place Monday morning along the western edge of the Central Business District.
Construction began for 2222 Market St., a $200 million office tower that will house the headquarters of law firm Morgan Lewis & Bockius. Last December, Morgan Lewis signed a 20-year lease for the development of what will be a 19-story, 305,000-square-foot building that the law firm will fully occupy.
The project is forward-looking. It looks to a future when companies and employees can safely return to their offices. It confirms the law firm’s commitment to its own future, and it’s a recognition of Philadelphia’s future.
The building will stand as a monument to Philadelphia’s spirit and confidence in what’s to come, said Sarah E. Bouchard, managing partner at Morgan Lewis’ Philadelphia office.
