The new flagship financial center is located at 1835 Market Street in center city Philadelphia.
At 7,000 square feet – almost three times the average 2,500 square foot branch model the plant implements – the project was designed by Philadelphia-based Architect Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.
Within the large footprint, the scope included space for wealth management, business banking and mortgage professionals, meeting rooms for community and nonprofit organizations, and a 20-foot high social equity-themed mural by artist Felix St. Fort from Mural Arts Philadelphia. The space was designed with technology for in-person or virtual meetings with advisors and bankers. A defining feature of the design and installation is the custom-built ribbon wall with slat millwork on top of digital screens featuring their logo.
Services for the project included 18 months of preconstruction from conceptual through construction documents, with all team members working through feasibility and constructability. Construction was complete in 6 months. This project was complete in partnership with another general contractor.

Managing a project with stakeholders around the world, across different time zones and during a global pandemic was no mean feat. Through it all, the open communication, Josh and Jamie’s collaborative spirit and the expertise of their team made our regular meetings the highlight of my week.
For Brickworks, as a building product manufacturer, it was especially important for our products to take center stage in the space KMC Partners created. The care and attention taken during design and installation of our products is truly world class; befitting a showroom to rival any of our luxurious neighbors including Prada, Armani and Louis Vuitton.
We are delighted with how the design studio turned out and it is sure to be a shining jewel on Fifth Avenue for many years to come.
