PHILADELPHIA | University City Science Center at 3737 Market | 13 flrs | 221 ft


http://source/

Title: University City Science Center at 3737 Market
Project: Medical Space/ Office Space
Architect: Zimmer, Gunsul, Frasca Architects with UJMN Architects & Design
Developer: University City Science Center/ INTECH
Location: 3737 Market St., Philadelphia, PA
Neighborhood: University City
District: West Philadelphia
Floors: 13
Height: 221 ft

Located at the northeast corner of 38th and Market Streets, the 272,700-square-foot building will feature outpatient
medical facilities, ground-floor retail, and office and lab space for start-up and growing companies.

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center will occupy approximately 155,700 square feet for orthopedics and outpatient
medical facilities. In addition, Good Shepherd Penn Partners will occupy an additional floor and a half in the building.
Subject to Penn Presbyterian’s expansion rights, the Science Center and its joint venture partner, Wexford Science +
Technology, will control the remaining 88,000 square feet in the building for other uses related to the Science Center’s
mission of supporting tech-based innovation, entrepreneurship and economic development in the region.



Construction is expected to begin in September 2012 with an expected delivery date of June 2014. The project was
designed by the internationally renowned architecture firm of Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects in cooperation with
UJMN Architects + Designers with the goal of receiving LEED Silver certification. The building is being leased by Cushman
and Wakefield. Penn Presbyterian Medical Center was represented by Geis Realty Group.

In addition to serving the expansion needs of one of the major medical institutions in Philadelphia, Penn Presbyterian
Medical Center, this new facility will expand the capacity of the Science Center's current research park, furthering its
efforts to transform its campus into a world-class innovation center.

This is from yesterday. It was really tough to find a good angle to take pics from.

And I'm guessing there must be a thread for the proposed 3800 Market somewhere already as well?

Thanks for the update! Appreciate it

Seems they are taking forever with this one as well

I don't get it... Wanamaker Plaza near Temple U broke ground AFTER This building and is already up to 6 floors

As for 3800 Market... it is certainly in the pipeline for the UCity Science Center, but we will create a thread for it when there are more concrete plans. Just so you know (if you don't already), there are also plans for 3400 Market Street as well

Quote:
A new University City Science Center building is an anchor tenant and a FAR (floor-area-ratio) variance away from climbing 17 stories into the air—282 feet and seven inches, to be exact.

Right now the area where it will be built is a parking lot at 3400 Market St. And on the fence of that lot you can see the signs of future progress—actually, sign, since there is only one Cushman and Wakefield sign with a picture of the proposed tower on the north corner of the fence.

Cool. It looks like this one is at ground level finally. Progress should feel a bit faster from here on out now that it's above ground.
