Market East Philadelphia Condominiums

Market East is the name that demarks the area along Philadelphia’s Market Street bordered by Chestnut Street, Arch Street, Juniper Street, and 6th Street. Technically part of Center City, Market East has been one of Philadelphia’s major retail centers since the 1800s, when it was actually a market street, full of merchants and farmers bringing their wares to stalls, carts and booths.

Today, the neighborhood is home to many corporate and privately owned retail establishments and Market East Philadelphia condos. The neighborhood draws shoppers from all over the city and the outlying areas. The Gallery at Market East, the Strawbridge and Clothier flagship store, and the Reading Terminal Market are notable retail anchors. Other Market East landmarks include the Philadelphia Convention Center and the Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital.
