Philadelphia Magazine Making a Historic Move

Stradley Ronon represented Metro Corp., publisher of Philadelphia Magazine and Boston Magazine, in a 12-year lease deal for a 15,786-square-foot space that will be home to its Philadelphia offices at The Curtis, located at 601 Walnut Street in Old City. The Curtis is a historic building that once housed Curtis publishing, producer of The Saturday Evening Post and the Ladies Home Journal. Metro Corp, will be moving from its current location at 1818 Market Street in August.

“As Philadelphia Magazine continues its evolution into an omni-channel media company, we view this move to the Curtis and Washington Square as critical to our reinvention,” said David Lipson, chairman and CEO of Metrocorp, in a statement to the Philadelphia Business Journal. “We’re a hundred-year-old company, but we aspire to have the culture of a start-up that is nimble enough to adapt to an ever-changing world. As we change the way we work, it made sense to take the company to a building and space that fits our vision for the future. At the Curtis, we found the best of both worlds – a venue with a historic connection to publishing, where our staff can be surrounded by other innovative companies as we build a business built to thrive in the 21st century.”
