3675 Market Gets the OK from Civic Design Review
Quote:
Designs for 3675 Market Street, a 14-story tower designed by New York-based ZGF Architects, were lauded yesterday at the Civic Design Review meeting. Renderings of the first major project of the redevelopment plans for the University City High School "superblock" revealed a glassy facade, reminiscent of other towers that have staked their claim in the neighborhood, from the EVO building at 2930 Chestnut and the forthcoming FMC Tower.

The base of the building will be made of jet mist stone, which architect David Hess said is also used on other structures in Philly, including the National Museum of American Jewish History.

In a recent column, Philadelphia Inquirer's architecture critic Inga Saffron wrote, "The kickoff building [..] is a boxy glass box, saved from pure banality only by a pop-out bay that grabs the facade like a clamp."

Still, the Civic Design Review committee applauded the designs for their attractiveness and high quality, and voted to conclude the CDR process. All 321,801 square feet of 3675 Market will serve as a retail, business, office, research, and development space.

Not included in the application, however, were plans for the public space that is being designed by Philly landscape architecture firm Olin. Hess said those designs will be part of a separate process.

I have one last photo from the other night - wanted to capture what was north/northeast and this seems like the most relevant thread for it as the space 3675 Market will occupy as it rises is at least visible in the image:

It looks like this garage could be hauled away and set up someplace else. True recycling in the best way, except that it is a garage.

Correct. There is no basement. Just a Ground floor loading dock.

Form the bizjournals article on the Center City office market:

Quote:
To ease that pressure, new office buildings are in the pipeline. Construction of 3675 Market St. is underway. The 350,000-square-foot building will have office and lab space, which is already getting gobbled up.

“We have handshakes for about half of it,” Garvey said, declining to disclose the names of the firms that have indicated they want to occupy space in the building.

Even more space is on the way for University City. Garvey said he is already getting feelers for 3800 Market St., a 750,000-square-foot complex that will be constructed in two phases.
So half of this building is committed already, which means we should see construction really begin sooner rather than later. The article even says its "under construction" though the site activity doesn't seem to indicate that. Great news!

i was just looking on the permit map to see if any building permit had been issued for this structure. Nothing is showing up. 3800 market sounds like it will be huge.

Still no permits pulled for vertical construction despite rumors that as much as half the building is pre-leased (i assume they'd want at least that much to proceed). I wonder if those deals are in trouble.

yeah I have been looking for permits. Nothing here or for the site to the north where UC HS was located. Very interesting. Rents in UC are high so I wouldn't think this building would have trouble launching.
