1919 Market Street is a 28-story, mixed-use building comprised of 321 luxury apartments and upscale amenities including an infinity pool, demonstration kitchen and rooftop clubhouse.

Bala’s mechanical and electrical groups designed the building to utilize a high-efficiency heat pump system and a high-rise life safety system.  The Philadelphia Fire Department assisted in the design of the fire protection system that include differentiation of pressure zones and backup capability. 

Bala’s technology group performed infrastructure and audio/visual design services for the amenity spaces on the 20th floor and designed telecom services within the individual units of the building and Bala’s commissioning group provided LEED fundamental commissioning services for the project, which achieved LEED v3 Gold Certification under the New Construction rating system (LEED-NC).
