    For a second day, city workers won’t be heading to work at a Center City high-rise today as crews continue to deal with a broken pipe that flooded elevators.

    A broken pipe flooded the elevators of the 18-story One Parkway Building located at 1515 Arch Street, according to city officials.

    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter’s office announced Wednesday morning that the 18-story building will remain closed until further notice due to mechanical issues with the elevators.

    Crews spent the day trying to get the system working again but couldn't get it back online in time.

    The City Planning Commission, Department of Human Services, Law Department, Labor Relations, Parks and Recreation and other city offices are housed in the One Parkway high-rise.

    The city urged non-essential employees to not report to the building today and to instead get in touch with their supervisors for further instruction.

    Essential employees can stop by the building between 7 to 11 a.m. to pick up belongings, according to the city.
