East Market Announces New Canopy by Hilton Hotel

Philadelphia, PADecember 19, 2019 — National Real Estate Development, LLC (“National Development”) today announced the addition of Canopy Philadelphia Center City (“Canopy Philadelphia”), a lifestyle hotel that is part of the Hilton portfolio. Located at 1180 Ludlow Street as part of the East Market development in Center City, Canopy Philadelphia will offer 236 rooms and is scheduled to open in the spring of 2020.


“We are excited to welcome Canopy Philadelphia as our newest partner at East Market,” said Daniel Killinger, President, National Real Estate Development. “In seeking out a hotel provider for this project, we wanted an upscale brand that could serve as a natural extension of the vibrant East Market neighborhood. Canopy checks all the right boxes and we’re confident it will be a welcomed addition to Center City.”


Designed by BLT Architects and developed as an adaptive reuse of the historic Stephen Girard Building, Canopy Philadelphia will pay homage to the rich history of the city while infusing a hip, modern look and feel. The hotel will feature a signature restaurant and bar program, which will include an American brasserie with French influence. Additionally, hotel guests will be treated to a number of first-class amenities and services, including Canopy Bike Program, complimentary evening tasting of wine, sprits and beer, approximately 3,600 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, and more.


“Canopy is thrilled to be joining the East Market neighborhood in Center City Philadelphia,” said Gary Steffen, Global Head, Canopy by Hilton. “Our hotels are located in the most desirable neighborhoods across the globe, so when it came time to determine a location for our new property here in Philadelphia, the choice was easy. East Market has everything visitors look for, including immediate access to world class shopping, restaurants, popular tourist destinations and public transportation.”


Located in the East Market neighborhood of Center City, Canopy Philadelphia is conveniently situated between the city’s historic and business districts and is in close proximity to popular destinations such as the Liberty Bell, National Constitution Center, Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia Fashion District and the Pennsylvania Convention Center.


The Canopy by Hilton brand was launched in 2014 with the modern, active-but-discerning traveler in mind, and aims to be the “lamp post” of each neighborhood in which it operates, providing locals and guests alike with simple, personal and – most importantly – positive experiences. Canopy by Hilton currently has 12 properties open across five countries and a robust pipeline of more than 40 hotels.


Bounded by Market, Chestnut, and 11th & 12th Streets, the East Market project has transformed the city’s primary east-west corridor into a dynamic full block of leading stores, popular restaurants, creative office spaces, including Design Center Philadelphia, MOM’s Organic Market, Wawa, Iron Hill Brewery, City Fitness, District Taco and WeWork. The project also includes two brand new luxury apartment towers – The Ludlow and The Girard.
