Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant plans to open its first Center City location in the East Market retail, office and apartment complex on Market Street, between 11th and 12th Streets.

The 8,450-square-foot brew pub at 1150 Market St., the base of East Market's western residential tower, is expected to open in spring 2018, the Wilmington-based chain said in a release Monday.

Iron Hill Center City will be the company's first location "in a major metropolitan hub, setting the stage for further brand expansion along the East Coast," the release said. The company already has a dozen locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

Iron Hill joins Mom's Organic Market, Design Within Reach, and other tenants at the East Market project.
