The Bourse Marketplace Announces New Restaurants Coming This Summer!

MRP Realty and CANAdev are excited to announce the addition of Baltimore and D.C.’s best fast-casual eateries to the recently announced line-up of diverse and exciting mix of vendors at The Bourse Marketplace in Philadelphia – set to open in Summer 2018.

Headquartered in Baltimore, CANADev is managing the curation of the retail tenants and is bringing an array of artisanal vendors to The Bourse Marketplace — one of Philadelphia’s most iconic buildings currently undergoing a $50M transformation. Upon opening, The Bourse Marketplace will offer visitors and locals alike 27 high-quality food and beverage purveyors under one roof, in addition to four anchor tenants located in the building’s four corners.

“CANAdev is thrilled to be managing the curation of the marketplace and in helping to restore the glory of The Bourse into the iconic destination that the City of Philadelphia and its visitors to Independence Mall deserve.” Said Michael Morris, Principal, CANAdev. “The Bourse will provide a food and artisan destination that reflects great quality and diversity.” Michael Morris, Principal, CANAdev

The Bourse Marketplace will rival the country’s top food hall destinations such as New York’s Chelsea Market and D.C.’s Union Market. The building’s renovation will include a full restoration to the entrances on both 4th and 5th Streets, creating lively outdoor seating, and a thoughtfully curated mix of vendors and designated common areas with communal seating, establishing The Bourse as a local and regional destination for food, beverage, and unique retail offerings.

“The Bourse is an amazing building with a rich history of its own that dates to the 1890s on Independence Mall, since before there was an Independence Mall. We are excited to restore and reveal the original architectural charm and detail that The Bourse holds. That has always been my goal for this project. And now with our vision taking shape for the new marketplace, and for the balance of the building, it thrills me to be part of the Old City neighborhood in a bold and thoughtful way.” Said Charles McGrath, Managing Director, MRP Realty


The Bourse is a grand Beaux-Arts building dating back to 1891, when it was founded as the nation’s first commodities exchange. For a behind-the-scenes look into the renovation progress, news from the tenants and more – follow @TheBoursePhilly on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
