Events Raw Space

1600 Market Street

1600 Market Street is a 825,968 square foot, 39-story Class A office tower in Philadelphia’s thriving Central Business District. 1600 Market Street’s ideal location places its tenants within a short walk to a number of award-winning restaurants and luxury retail. By seamlessly pairing Pop Art that celebrates Philadelphia’s character with 2021 workplace wellness standards, 1600 Market offers an office environment unlike anything else in Center City. This landmark building’s history and prominent location combined with the signature art is integrated into the light-filled redesigned lobby and throughout all of the amenity spaces—creating modern, exciting and functional workspaces.


We have experienced the enthusiasm of returning to live in-person events this year, having safely and successfully hosted more than 10,000 executives to date. While we are thrilled to convene together to propel growth within CRE, COVID-19 remains a worldwide concern and Bisnow is committed to practicing safe protocols at our events. You can expect the following:


  • Facial coverings will be required by all staff & attendees, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be made available at the door.
  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Attendance at the event will be capped.
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Socially distanced seating will be available in the main event space.
  • Enhanced sanitization protocols will be adhered to throughout the event space including regularly disinfecting surfaces throughout the event and hand sanitizer provided to all attendees.


As local regulations and guidance evolve, the CRE industry continues to lead the way forward. We look forward to gathering safely to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business. We look forward to hosting you soon.

What You’ll Learn:

  • The value of commercial real estate is still down by 6% compared to one year ago. What action plans should be put in place to safeguard the value of office assets?
  • According to the NAR’s Q1 survey report, 70% of office real estate members conveyed that companies are leasing or moving into offices with smaller square footage due to working from home. What amenities and design adaptations will help retain tenants and promote growth?
  • Nearly 14% of Center City‘s office space was listed as available during the first three months of 2021, according to CoStar Group. How high could the vacancy rate go, and what could that mean for the market?



How You’ll Do More Business: 

  • The value of office assets is facing major tension because of COVID-related changes in the market. With remote work influencing tenant retention and COVID’s influence on design and lease terms, it is difficult to agree on the value of the office. 
  • Learn how to turn pain points into profit, define which relationships you should nurture to maximize earning potential, and discover how to best position your company to take advantage of forecasted investment opportunities.


Who You'll Meet: Investors, developers, architects, brokers, tenants, and engineers.
