After demolition, construction can really ramp up, and East Market, Market, Ludlow and Chestnut between 11th and 12th streets, is going to be a lot taller and more vibrant, according to artists’ renderings.

It is slated to feature two floors of stores and 322 apartments that will stretch to 17 stories.
