Eastern Tower Community Center The Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation (PCDC) and JNA Capital invite you to the groundbreaking ceremony of Eastern Tower Community Center, a momentous and long-awaited project. Eastern Tower, a mixed-use building, is located in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia and will contain the neighborhood’s first community center, 150 units of housing, and 29,700 SF of retail/commercial space.
Eastern Tower will create a neighborhood hub and regional destination while expanding economic opportunities for this growing multicultural community. The 195,000 SF, 20-story building is located on Chinatown’s main commercial corridor, on the front porch of the Vine Street Expressway which has bisected the community for decades. The community will be enhanced by recreational space, a green terrace, an education lab, a fitness center, and event space.
This long-awaited dream of the Chinatown community is PCDC’s flagship project, made possible by the support of the community and many champions. This project leverages the support of public and private funders and investors working together to create a lasting and significant impact in the City of Philadelphia.
The development of the community center heralds a new era of PCDC’s continual commitment to a community-based approach to preserving, protecting and promoting Chinatown. Please join us as we celebrate this wonderful milestone for the Chinatown community.
