The Right Move for the sixers

The Right Move For The Sixers.

The Right Move for Market East

What's 76Place
All About?

Working in close collaboration with stakeholders from across Philadelphia, the 76ers are poised to fully deliver a world-class arena to the heart of Philadelphia – at no cost to city taxpayers. This slam dunk for our city, businesses, residents, and fans is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to revitalize Market East and give the 76ers and its fans the arena they deserve.

The Right Move for Philadelphia

The 76ers’ need for a modern and permanent home aligns with the city’s need to revitalize Market East, a section of Center City dealing with increasing vacancy and decreased foot traffic, creating a win-win opportunity.

Market East Reimagined

Market East has historically served as the gateway to Philadelphia’s business, shopping, and entertainment districts. Decades-long challenges with the Fashion District Mall (formerly the Gallery) have contributed to decreased safety and foot traffic and increased vacancy. Replacing that with a state-of-the-art arena with groundfloor retail will help reactivate and revitalize the area on both event and non-event days alike.

The project would be a major economic driver for Philadelphia, creating jobs and contract opportunities during construction and after opening. We are committed to connecting these economic opportunities to residents and businesses in the surrounding neighborhoods and communities of color across the city.

And Don't Worry

It's Accessible, too.

Inspired by the success of downtown arenas built around public transportation hubs in other cities, we believe that Market East is the best location for a new arena. It would be located in the part of the mall from 10th-11th Streets on Market Street.
