PMC Property Group has shaved a few floors off its office-and-residential project at the former Marketplace Design Center building at 2400 Market St., to ease its passage through the city's approval process.

Plans for the project, posted on the website of the city's Civic Design Review panel, call for a 19-story tower, down from a previously announced 22 stories. The reduction, achieved by a decrease in the number of office floors, should alleviate the need for any zoning exceptions, PMC executive vice president Jonathan Stavin said Wednesday.

The project, consisting of a new glass-and-metal structure atop the existing brick building, is to be reviewed by the Center City Residents' Association on May 24 and by the Civic Design Review Board on May 31.

Aramark Corp. has named the building as a potential site for its future headquarters if it moves from its current home at 1101 Market St.
