Completed in 1895, the Philadelphia Bourse Building originally served as the first commodities exchange in the United States. Three types of masonry were used on the facade: Carlisle redstone, Pompeian buff brick and terra cotta.

MRP Realty has announced the first group of official tenants that will open in The Bourse Marketplace in Old City. The 24,000-square-foot food court is currently under redevelopment and set to open summer 2018.

The eateries will offer grab-and-go and fast-casual options for those working around Independence Mall and visiting the historic neighborhood.

When The Bourse Marketplace finally opens, there will be a total of 27 eateries. Below are the ones that have been announced so far.
