The Lits Building - Five Below Headquarters

Lit Brothers department store began as a single building on the corner of 8th & Market Street in 1893. By 1907, Lit Brothers had acquired and constructed the balance of the block in 13 separate stages to unify the building as it exists today for their iconic department store.

In 1985, an affiliate of Brickstone acquired the property and undertook its certified historic rehabilitation, incorporating all-new systems while retaining the character of the first 1893 structure on 8th and market and its final 1907 expansion. The property earned the National Trust Honor Award for best large-scale commercial rehabilitation in the nation 1989.

In 2016, Brickstone launched a major program of capital improvements, including rooftop LED signage, illumination of the entire building façade to showcase the historic architecture, and upgrades to building common areas, vertical transportation systems and operating systems. Brickstone's mixed-use redevelopment includes 600,000 s.f. of first-class office space occupied together with 150,000 s.f. of prime retail space. Brickstone recently welcomed Five Below’s Corporate Headquarters into the most authentic collaborative work space in the City of Philadelphia.

Present Brickstone ownership, functioning together since 1988, is comprised of eight principal partners. Brickstone offers a highly sophisticated transactional team, with decades of experience and direct, hands-on involvement in every project phase from conception to completion and thereafter, including site selection, entitlement and permitting, financing, construction management, leasing, and property management.
