Premier Physical Therapy to Join the Community at the Q
– Iconic Quartermaster Campus of South Philadelphia Welcomes Newest Tenant –

January 25, 2021 [Philadelphia, PA] – Colliers International is pleased to announce a new lease at the Quartermaster, an iconic campus of six buildings encompassing one million square feet of available space over 24 acres, located at 2800 S. 20th Street in the Girard Estate neighborhood of South Philadelphia. Premier Physical Therapy will soon occupy 8,661 square feet in Building 12.

Premier Physical Therapy is a regional therapy practice dedicated to diagnosing and providing high quality treatment and rehabilitation for musculoskeletal and neurologic disorders, with current operations in Philadelphia, Wyomissing and Allentown. The group will be relocating its current Moyamensing Avenue location to the site.

“The convenient South Philadelphia location, availability of parking and unique architectural features all attracted us to the Quartermaster and will make it a great home to host our patients. We look forward to being an active member of the community at the Q.” shared Carl Contino of Premier.

The move comes at an exciting time for the Quartermaster which is undergoing a bold redevelopment plan. The Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot, an expansion of the Schuylkill Arsenal dating back to the early 1800’s, was built at its current location in 1918 as America joined the fray of WWI – outfitting the doughboys of that era. It went on to be the largest purchaser and maker of textile products in the world and likened to a “little Pentagon.” It’s historically significant art deco buildings and central clocktower designed by Ballinger sit at the heart of the complex that was supported by its own railroad system, police and fire protection. At the height of wartime efforts the depot employed up to 15,000 Philadelphians.
This storied campus, home to Homeland Security’s Delaware Valley Intelligence Center (DVIC) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Regional Job Corps Training Center remains driven by its original sense of productivity and community and is proudly readying to serve a new generation as a unique and vibrant destination.

Premier was represented by Joe Viturello of Perna Frederick Commercial Real Estate. Colliers International is exclusive agent to the Quartermaster and SkyREM.
