Learn how this world-famous city planner based this commercial development complex on William Penn’s vision that Market Street would be a commercial thoroughfare and see two generations of commercial architecture: Modern & Post-Modern. Meet at the exterior north portal of City Hall, N. Broad Street & JFK Boulevard."
