Penn Medicine plans new medical technology tower

The University of Pennsylvania Health System plans a new medical office tower at the current site of a mostly empty lot at 3600 Civic Center Blvd., according to a design application filed with the city.

The 18-story, nearly 485,000-square-foot Center for Healthcare Technology building would be constructed beside an existing patient parking garage, according to the plans posted Wednesday to the web page of Philadelphia's Civic Design Review board. Perkins & Will is named as architect for the glass, aluminum and precast-concrete structure.

The plans suggest that the tower will be built in phases, with the first stage of construction bringing it to eight stories.

The CDR panel, which makes nonbinding design suggestions for the city's biggest development projects, is scheduled to review the proposal on Aug. 2. Penn Health spokeswoman Holly Auer had no immediate information about the plan's cost or other details.
