How to get to Open Coaching

Open Coaching sessions are at DLA Piper’s offices on the 50th floor of 1650 Market Street, Philadelphia, in the One Liberty Place tower, a block from City Hall. We suggest arriving no later than 9:45 in order to get through building security. Once upstairs you’ll be welcomed with free coffee, sodas, muffins, fruit, and an excellent view.


Take SEPTA Regional Rail to Suburban Station. The underground pedestrian concourse is a bit of labyrinth. Follow the red EXIT signs for 17th & JFK Blvd. Go into the food court, up the ramp on the right side, then up the stairs into the huge Comcast building lobby. Exit through the rotating doors, and walk one block south to Market Street.


Get off at the 15th Street Trolley Station. Exit the station. Turn yourself in place so City Hall is on your left. Walk one block south to Market Street, and turn right. The building is on the south side of Market Street.


Most street parking in Center City is two-hour, at most three. If you’re lucky enough to find a spot and have the MeterUp or ParkMobile, you can extend the time from the app. Just be certain to set an alarm for yourself a few minutes before your time expires.

Or, we suggest using SpotHero to prepay for discount parking and a guaranteed spot at a commercial lot or garage. If for some reason the garage does not have space, park anywhere else, keep the receipt, and contact SpotHero for a refund.

In general, the garages near City Hall are the most expensive. If you look six or eight blocks to the North, West, or South, you’ll find better rates.
