Yes, that's street you're viewing in the rendering. The Schuylkill is behind the Phase 1 building, which is not in sight. It's okay that you got confused. It happens to me a lot! And your welcome. Btw, stop watching "Arrow" episodes on the CW, it's making you paranoid. The archer will not be hiding along that wall!

It IS a research building after all.

Maybe that wall helps its Zombie-proofing. The question is, is it there to keep them out or to keep them in? Fun thoughts while you walk by that wall at night.

Cheers,

CDR says progress made but they still recommend changes to the curb cut outs on South Street bridge. This project is off to the Planning Commission now.

Employer-assisted housing expert Dan Hoffman says including housing in the development and otherwise encouraging employees to become city residents would benefit CHOP, the city, and the surrounding neighborhoods.


The current design debate regarding CHOP’s proposed expansion more resembles a debate about what kind of hub cap to put on a flat tire than it does any serious consideration of urban development policy. It’s nice to have a shiny, new, hubcap, but it doesn’t fix the tire. Fixing the tire would be saying to a tax-exempt institution...

Another article from Phillyliving.com about the CDR approving this project and sending it on it's way to the Planning Commission. Also a list of some of the recommendations they made to CHOP

Can we get a name change for this thread to say?:

PHILADELPHIA | CHOP @ 700 Schuylkill Ave | 23 floors | 375 feet

We'll make this thread just about Phase 1, and then any future phases built at later dates we can create separate threads for.

Thanks!

Kellie from PlanPhilly is live tweeting the meeting's progress which is currently on CHoP's portion: https://twitter.com/KelliePGates

As it turns out, they have eliminated 1 of their proposed 2 curb cuts on the SS bridge. They've also committed to building out all public space in phase 1, despite the complications that arise for future phases, and have committed to commercial space on SS... applying for the needed variances to make it official. they've also committed to commercial on Schuylkill and bainbridge, but doubt the demand is there. Additionally, they've pledged a bikeshare onsite.

Inga, who is also there, says more renderings of the campus have been shared at the meeting.

Next Steps

Now, that the first phase has gotten approval, is there a targeted date as to when construction/demolition will begin? Or are there other steps beforehand?
