PHILADELPHIA | 3675 Market | 241 FT | 15 FLOORS

Title: 3675 Market
Project: Office, retail
Architect: ZGF Architecture
Developer: Wexford Science and Technology, University City Science Center
Location: 37th and Market, Philadelphia, PA
Neighborhood: University City
District: West Philadelphia
Floors: 15 floors
Height: 241'







Quote:
3675 Market Street, a 15-story, 325,000 SF Class A laboratory/office building. The project is currently in the design phase with a projected start date in late 2015. The project requires the demolition of an existing parking garage and office building. The removal of these buildings allows for site re-configuration that will allow for a future extension of 37th Street from Filbert to Market Street in addition to the proposed new lab/office building and plaza. The project will serve as the cornerstone as the Science Center expands its mixed-use environment to the former University City High School site. The building will contain flexible wet laboratory space, computational laboratory space, office, retail and a shared work/conference meeting space. The building will be designed for 60% office and 40% laboratory.

I'm kind of wondering whether or not they'll renovate 3701 Market. You know, since now it'll be a corner property with an entirely new street frontage.

12 floors is much better than what's there now.

They make it look that way in the rendering, however that's not to say they actually will renovate it.

These bland boxes are just that but the SciCenter's contribution to the city's economy is immense. I just wish that they would set aside one of their lots for a high profile, well-designed tower that stands above the squat glass buildings that mark the rest of the campus. Unless you're on Market Street, most workers, visitors, and even residents don't know that the Science Center exists. I'd love to see a highly visible statement making building that grabs people's attention and makes everyone know the Science Center is a vital cog in our economy.

Empirical science and aesthetics are at opposite ends of the spectrum . Not so surprised at its design .

While it's nothing spectacular, this is a HUGE improvement over what is currently there. It will liven up the street with retail and actually come up to the curb, all while providing good jobs. I don't think this building was ever intended to be the "flashy" tower of the Science Center complex, but I'll be at least two of the future buildings will be a little more aesthetically pleasing. For me, however, the most important aspect of the project is breaking up the super-block and continuing the street grid. It will make a huge difference in that area.

I wonder how long it will be before we see plans for the entire UC HS site behind this.

That's from sea level, not from ground level. One of the last pages actually gives the height of the structure which is 241'.

It would make sense that this is the height since 3737 Market was 13 floors and 221 feet tall and 3601 Market is 28 floors and 320 feet tall. It's not as close as 3601 Market in height in the renderings as only being a 7 foot difference.

Looking at those full site renders this building is extremely close to what was presented. So it appears that that site plan may come to life as presented.

I like this building, nice design for a short tower. In 20 years we will all be hoping they demolish all of these shorter towers for high rises though, but what can you do, its great for the area right now.
