FMC Tower at Cira Centre South

project at a glance

The FMC Tower at Cira Centre South is a 49-story, mixed-use building. Offering opportunities to live, work, and play, the building is Philadelphia’s first ‘vertical neighborhood’. Partially constructed over active railroad lines, the tower provides an iconic entry to the emerging University City neighborhood.

The lower portion of the building contains retail, office, and amenities spaces, with the global headquarters of the FMC Corporation occupying 11 floors. The 28th floor is a shared amenity floor which includes a fitness center, media screening room, private dining and conference areas, and a 72’ pool.

The construction of the structure for the residential floors is vastly different from that of the office floors: on floor 29, the building structure transitions from a concrete core with steel framing to an all-concrete superstructure. The residential floors contain 268 apartments.

Taking architectural cues from the nearby Cira Centre, also built by Turner, the tower’s angled, crystalline exterior comprises nearly 6,000 unitized curtainwall panels.
