MOM’s Coming to East Market Project

by John Jordan

MOM’s Organic Market has committed to lease 16,000 square feet of ground floor space at the newly renovated 34 S. 11th St. office building here.

The lease announcement coincides with the launch of the office leasing efforts at the office building that has 160,000 square feet of contiguous space available. The building is part of the larger 4.3 acre, mixed-use East Market redevelopment project. When completed, East Market will reopen the city block to pedestrian activity, provide local and global retail and dining experiences, deliver 322 new residential units and offer contemporary, collaborative office space.

"The mission and clientele of MOM’s Organic Market aligns perfectly with East Market,” says Daniel Killinger, director of development for East Market. “East Market will be a dynamic urban environment for young professionals and innovators who place value on experience and convenience. We are full speed ahead building an exciting development and look forward to adding more tenants that fulfill the vision of reviving Market Street.”

The store will feature free electric car chargers, bulk foods, local and organic meats, sustainable seafood, gluten-free foods and Naked Lunch, an all-organic vegetarian eatery.

“We are excited to open MOM’s in downtown Philadelphia – a city with incredible energy and community,” says MOM’S founder Scott Nash. “We believe that the more MOM's stores there are, the better off the world will be...we know of no other retail chain that is as environmentally responsible as we are. We have one Purpose-to protect and restore the environment. Through our actions and leading by example, the more stores we have, the more we can accomplish our Purpose.”

A former warehouse building, 34 S. 11th St. is being transformed into a Class A contemporary warehouse office building that includes large open floor plates, high ceilings, full height windows and a brand new HVAC system, elevators and lobby.

“34 S. 11th Street offers the benefits of a loft-style creative space with the comfort of all-new building systems—a unique blend here in Center City,” says Peter Soens of SSH Real Estate, the development’s office leasing firm and part owner of the project.
