Penn is probably also demanding that any parcel of theirs in the area has CMX-5 zoning already attached to it, since HUP has a significant space problem and practically all of the recent projects done in the area have been fully occupied the day the doors opened. Expanding HUP further would also involve expanding into the riverside athletic fields, which would need new infrastructure to support it.

Meanwhile Penn Presby has oodles of space to use, including various nooks and crannies that can be filled facing 38th, a giant parking lot on its 39th Street side, and another parking lot at the corner of 38th & Powelton, as well as various office functions and such being expected to be absorbed by the Science Center. That's a big part of why ER functions are now consolidated there.
