Construction Of Philly’s Mormon Temple Without Caffeine, Smoking, Swearing

It’s been two years since ground was broken in Center City on a massive Mormon temple and visitors’ center, and it might just be one of the more remarkable construction sites in recent city history.

Let’s just say the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (LDS) goes by its own rules — not those typically found in local union handbooks. And it makes sure those rules are enforced.

No smoking. No coffee. No swearing.

Praying optional — but encouraged.

Mormon Temple To Be Built In Philadelphia

Mayor Nutter announced the construction of a new Mormon Temple at 1701 Vine Street in Philadelphia this afternoon.  The temple will be about a block north of the Cathedral of Saints Peter & Paul, on the other side of the Vine Street Expressway.  The site is currently a parking lot.  The temple will feature two 200-feet tall spires and be approximately 40,000 – 50,000 square feet.

The temple will be the church’s third high-rise temple and the first Mormon Temple in Pennsylvania.  There are about 48,000 Mormons in Pennsylvania. 

The church expects 400,000 annual visitors to the center-city temple which the city feels is significant.  City officials are pleased the new temple will be built in Philadelphia, and not a suburb.
