On September 29, Turner Construction Company celebrated the groundbreaking of its Philadelphia Ballet expansion project. The expansion on the new building will nearly quadruple the size of its home on North Broad Street.
Construction of the new five-story building of glass and steel, which will contain a black-box performance space, rehearsal spaces, and administrative offices, is expected to begin early next year at an anticipated cost of $35 million. Once finished, it will be the first time all of the company’s operations will be under one roof.
The new construction, expected to be completed in 2024, will ground the entire organization in a flagship building, and add one of the city’s major arts institutions to a developing North Broad arts district.
