On July 3, 2018, in the predawn hours, a 48-inch water main broke at the intersection of Sansom and Juniper Streets, releasing more than 15 million gallons of water and bringing a torrent of flooding to a neighborhood densely populated with office buildings, eateries and housing. The damage was immediate and catastrophic as the street turned into a sinkhole and power was cut to the surrounding area.
For our client, SSH Real Estate, its building at 123 S. Broad Street was rendered instantly without power as water penetrated two levels of the subbasement, destroying key mechanicals and frying the electric system. Constructed in 1927, 123 S. Broad is a 29-story iconic Philadelphia landmark, encompassing more than 750,000 sq. ft. and home to an incredible diversity of vibrant businesses.
