Jefferson Health’s Honickman Center Grand Opening Celebration

March 15, 2024

This week, the project partners celebrated the grand opening of Jefferson Health’s flagship outpatient care facility, the Honickman Center, in Center City Philadelphia.


Jefferson partnered with National Real Estate Development, LLC (“National Development”) to conceptualize and develop the Honickman Center project. Designed by Ennead Architects, the building deftly integrates into the dense urban neighborhood while introducing a curved glass façade which draws inspiration from Philadelphia’s history of textile production and establishes an innovative new architectural identity. Stantec oversaw the interior design of the clinical floors while BLTa of Philadelphia was responsible for the design of the below-grade garage and the site improvements for the project.

The building marks the final phase of National Development’s more than $1 billion East Market development, which has revitalized the East Market Street corridor into an active and vibrant destination and has been a catalyst for the redevelopment of Center City.  


“The opening of the Honickman Center and the completion of our East Market development is an incredible milestone for our team,” said Daniel Killinger, President of National Real Estate Development.  This facility will contribute greatly to the sense of community found here at East Market and complete the vision we had for the site over a decade ago.”
