AREP has created a workplace that offers exciting contrasts from the moment you enter — Pop Art blended with history, generating a unique language that is fresh and provocative. Highlighting Philadelphia’s historic and current luminaries, bespoke Pop Art is infused throughout 1600 Market Street.
The specially commissioned bright yellow ‘Willy’ the fox holding a red balloon sits above the reception desk in the lobby to greet visitors and is a nod to the building’s site where the old Fox Theatre once stood. The ‘Portrait Invaders’ and ‘Philadelphia Notables’ pieces featured on the ground floor and continued within the amenity center, artfully blend old and new Philly—Benjamin Franklin unknowingly in a graffiti-like selfie; Will Smith painted with intense colors sits atop a collage of old Philadelphia Enquirer newspaper covers.
Better days begin in better spaces which is why our dedication to wellness remains our top priority. Our holistic approach encompasses health, security and connectivity to assure the safety and comfort for our customers as they return to the workplace with confidence and clarity.
AREP’s hard work and recent investments have helped us achieve two of the most significant endorsements within our business – IWBI WELL and UL Industries. Not only is our entire portfolio WELL Health-Safety Rated, AREP is also the first commercial real estate company in the U.S. to achieve UL Industries Verified Healthy Buildings Mark for Indoor Air for its entire portfolio. This commitment provides our customers and their guests spaces that promote their physical and mental well-being while encouraging and enhancing productivity.
