Tenants in the historic Bourse Building and two additional office buildings in Center City will be the first office workers in Philadelphia to experience Charm City Concierge’s innovative platform. The revitalization of three buildings in the Old City District is MRP Realty’s first step into the Philadelphia market, and it’s a project that wouldn’t be complete without one more important differentiator: a multifaceted concierge platform. That’s where Charm City Concierge comes in. MRP chose to expand their relationship with Charm City Concierge to make waves in the Philadelphia commercial real estate market.
Though the assignment with MRP is new, the partnership is not—MRP properties in the DC metro area are also within Charm City Concierge’s portfolio. At these locations, they have worked together to redefine the traditional office experience—and they’ll bring the same programming that’s proven successful in the DC market to Philly’s office workers. “MRP is proud to continue to grow and expand our platform in the Philadelphia market by partnering with Charm City Concierge to deliver a best in class experience for our tenants. For over 5 years MRP and Charm City have forged a strategic partnership to enhance the overall experience in our buildings, and to continue our collective efforts to provide unparalleled customer service to our tenant base,” remarks Glenn Hugo, Regional Manager, MRP Realty.
With two new amenity spaces and a roof deck with stunning city views, Charm City Concierge will curate the tenant experience through monthly events such as whiskey or wine tastings, yoga, interactive lunch and learn series, and happy hours, just to name a few. Additional building amenities include open floor plans, a new lobby, a new gym—spaces that are rich with opportunity for pop up shopping, juice and coffee bars, group fitness classes, and more. “This programming is only scratching the surface of the possibilities offered through our Activate platform. Together with MRP, we’re establishing the trend in Philly and bringing them on board with what is already engrained in many other commercial real estate markets nationwide,” explains Tina Urquhart, President & CEO of Charm City Concierge.
Taking care of the tenants’ needs is a top priority for MRP—and seamlessly harmonizing work and life is what Charm City Concierge has perfected over 24 years of business. Through the Service platform, tenants will have access to an array of services whereby the concierge will free up to-do lists, but more importantly, give tenants the time to focus on things most important to them, enabling them to be happier, more productive employees.
“Charm City Concierge is ecstatic about our first venture into Philadelphia. Creating unique and purpose-driven workspaces is the driver in today’s commercial real estate market. We take that to the next level by activating these spaces and building community through creative and engaging programming,” shares Urquhart.
The concierge program at the Bourse Building, 325 Chestnut Street, and 400 Market Street will launch on October 4. Charm City Concierge is thrilled to expand their reach and spread the charm.
