Popularly known as the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia is the fifth most populous city in the US and is the second-largest city on the East Coast, serving as a major commercial, educational, and cultural center for the nation. Philadelphia is also one of the oldest and most historical cities in the country and home to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the homes of Edgar Allen Poe and Betsy Ross, and early government buildings such as the First and Second Banks of the United States. The city consists of a network of neighborhoods, each with their own distinct personality. KlingStubbins’ headquarters is situated in Center City Philadelphia, the heart of the city’s shopping, dining, business, and entertainment district. Two of the most notable building complexes in Center City, the Bell Atlantic Tower and Penn Center, were designed by KlingStubbins. The office is also within walking distance of University City, a neighborhood that houses some of the most prominent hospitals and universities in the nation, including The University of Pennsylvania and its associated hospital system, Drexel University, the University of the Sciences, and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. One of the region’s main railway stops, 30th Street Station, is also only a few blocks from KlingStubbins’ headquarters, providing easy access to the suburbs, other major metropolitan areas, and international airport. Downtown Philadelphia is characterized by its rich architecture, which dates back to the Colonial period and includes a wide range of styles. The city is famous for its organized grid system of numbered streets and five large public parks as originally designed by Pennsylvania's founder, William Penn.
