I've never in my life heard anyone refer to NHSL as the P&W. The rest I agree are age related, though I feel like some such EL/MFL are terms I use interchangeably and don't really favor one over the other.

"West River Drive" flows off the tongue better than "MLK" On the contrary, I personally think "Kelly Drive" works better than "East River Drive" My parents call the NHSL the P&W, and MFL/El for me is interchangeable, though it depends on where in the city I am. I'm not inclined to call it "the El" when it's technically under me.

Is this the first organization confirmed to set up shop in Schuylkill Yards?

https://technical.ly/philly/2017/11/...covery-center/

Quote:
Drexel University will house Pennsylvania’s first Fabric Discovery Center, a statewide hub aimed at manufacturing and research on smart fabrics. It’s a partnership between Drexel and the Department of Defense–backed Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA).

The center, the first such hub outside of AFFOA’s home state of Massachusetts, will be housed in the Schuylkill Yards development. The plans will also bring together research and expertise from universities across the state that are also members of AFFOA, including Carnegie Mellon, Penn State University and Jefferson University.
Was also reported here:

As per reliable sources, Pennsylvania’s Fabric Discovery Center will be housed at Schuylkill Yards, which is the Drexel University’s innovation-driven economic development tie-up with the Brandywine Realty Trust, in the year 2018. It has also been reported that the center will bring together, reliable expertise from universities across the state, who apparently will also be members of AFFOA. Additionally, sources cite that the center will be equipped to provide a rather advanced manufacturing facility that would help develop functional fabric prototypes for production.

So.. if Amazon came to Schuylkill Yards, which buildings would they use? I had been assuming they were using all of it. I would wager they at least get the big tower, and some of the ones around it?

I really dont think specific building heights are nailed down yet. I would be surprised if what we see built even look like the renderings. IF they get a big client I'm sure taller buildings can be built to accommodate such a thing. Also, Amazon does not HAVE to go to SY. The city recommended 3 sites, does not mean Amazon wants all or any of their operations in any of those 3.

Those 16:1 odds grabbed my attention - not because I find consensus of the masses to be often correct, but as a potential for putting my money where my mouth is.

Currently, I give Philly 40% chance of landing HQ2. I'm starting to think maybe I should head over to here and wager some cash.

Update: For any locals wanting to do it through that website, you have to use a VPN as it doesn't allow bets from the US.

With new large lease, Spark Therapeutics stays true to West Philly roots

Quote:
Spark Therapeutic Inc. has signed a large lease at One Drexel Plaza in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia where it currently maintains its headquarters.

The company took 107,669 square feet at 3001-3025 Market St., a building that Brandywine Realty Trust is redeveloping as part of its massive Schuylkill Yards development. The lease was signed Nov. 20 and will run for 15 years, according to documents Spark filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Under terms of the agreement, Spark has a 7-month abatement with Brandywine and then its base rent will cost between $17.50 a square foot and $35 a square foot and be subject to 2.5 percent annual rent increases, according to the SEC documents. The lease also provides Spark a tenant improvement allowance, money that is spent fitting out the space, of $6.6 million.

Spark, which has been growing ever since it spun out of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia four years ago, also reserved the right to take additional space in One Drexel Plaza, including the building’s fourth floor and certain space on the garden level. It also locked in three consecutive 5-year renewals beyond the initial 15-year lease.

Is this lease for the old Bulletin building just west of the park that Drexel is rebuilding at 30th St?
If so, does anyone have a sense of how many sq. ft. are in this building?

Yes, 3001 Market is the Bulletin Building. I thought it was interesting because Brandywine was pitching that to Amazon as space that would be immediately available if they were to choose the site for HQ2.

Also, why is the address given as 3001-3025 Market St.?

Yeah I'm not sure this bodes well for our chances... How much space is in the Bulletin building anyway?

I don’t get the angst over a lease. Is Brandywine supposed to wait for Amazon to make up its mind before leasing any of its available space? I think not. Also, if they’re really concerned about having immediate availability for Amazon, I’m sure they could put a Lou Holtz style “Notre Dame clause“ in the lease.

No angst, just find it all interesting. I'm thrilled Schuylkill Yards is happening with or without Amazon.

Indeed, I think it's good news. There's plenty of space for expansion, should a certain internet retailer decide to move in. In fact, a project that's already beginning to sign tenants might actually be a signal of vitality that proves attractive to them and others. As others have noted, this is GOING to happen. The question is how fast.

If Philly gets picked in the great Amazon give away I'm sure whatever their short term needs are will be meant, the City will move heaven and hell to accommodate.

Won't 2400 Market St have a pile of unclaimed space when they open next year, and about a year ago Children's Hospital moved out of 3535 Market St. leaving over 200K sq. ft. waiting to be leased, is that still on the Market.
