The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Philadelphia District will soon fully depart its headquarters offices at the Wanamaker Building in Philadelphia.
The General Services Administration Mid-Atlantic Region awarded a contract to lease new office space for the USACE Philadelphia District at 1650 Arch Street in Center City Philadelphia.
As part of the relocation, more than 300 USACE employees will depart the Wanamaker Building in October and November 2022. The Army Corps’ Philadelphia District anticipates transitioning to the new office space at 1650 Arch Street in early Spring 2023.
The District has maintained its headquarters at the Wanamaker Building since 1992 after moving from the Customs House on Chestnut Street.
“The Wanamaker Building has been a wonderful home for our District for 30 years,” said USACE Philadelphia District Commander Lt. Col. Ramon Brigantti. “We’d like to thank all the people who contributed to the environment there. We look forward to continuing to execute our mission and serve the Delaware Valley and our partners as we transition to our new home at 1650 Arch Street in 2023.”
The General Services Administration has established a temporary mailing address for the District at:
U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, PHILADELPHIA DISTRICT
100 SOUTH INDEPENDENCE MALL WEST
PHILADELPHIA, PA 19106-3400
During the transition period, District team members will continue to be available via phone and email.
