Checking in on the Public Safety Services Campus at 4601 Market

Renovations on the historic building are expected to be complete by the end of this year

It's been a minute since we last checked in on progress at the Public Safety Services Campus at 4601 Market. But a quick walk by the 15-acre property, formerly the Provident Mutual Life Building, revealed where construction stands as of this week.

Scaffolding has surrounded the clock bell tower for months now, and the windows have been boarded up.

The hulking limestone building is going to be part of the new Public Safety Services Campus, which will serve as the headquarters for the police, the medical examiner's office and morgue, and the Department of Health Laboratory Services.

The master plan was designed by Ballinger Architects and broke ground in 2014 and is expected to be ready in spring 2018. But renovations on the Provident Mutual Life Building should wrap up by the end of this year.
