Market Open During Construction

OpenDuringConstruction 01 330x222

If you have been through the Market East neighborhood recently, you might have noticed that there is scaffolding on the 12th Street side of the Market (and a little on Arch Street and Filbert Street as well).  The convention center has begun the arduous process of replacing the roof from the Reading Terminal Headhouse on Market Street all the way to the Race Street side of the convention center (and include the Market's roof).  The target date of completion is November 2017.

The good news is that the Market will remain open as usual throughout the construction (all 10 sets of doors are still accessible).  So, please come shop and dine as usual!

Contract Opportunities

Reading Terminal Market has received a grant from ArtPlace America for a creative placemaking initiative on the 1100 block of Filbert Street. ArtPlace America is a national consortium of funders that invests in creative placemaking projects in which the arts play a central role in planning and development.

The Market seeks a firm to lead a design process that will engage multiple stakeholders, including people who both live and work in the community and a contracted Arts Curator, in the creation of a design vision and public space management plan to transform the bleak underpass that connects the Market with a multi-modal transit hub into a welcoming outdoor space that integrates the arts. The goal is to create a realistic, achievable plan with broad-based support, transforming a dark, unappealing block into a vibrant, hospitable space linking some of Center City Philadelphia's most important places, and creating outdoor space for events and performances at Reading Terminal Market. The year-long project will also include developing and testing early interventions.
