Schuylkill Yards to Transform Philadelphia's University City


Quote:
SHoP Architects has been appointed the chief planner and developer of the architectural standards for the project, while Dutch firm West 8 is handling the public realm and landscaping attributes. Drexel University proposes a variety of uses for the site, including entrepreneurial spaces, educational facilities, research laboratories, and corporate offices. In the same vein as New York's Hudson Yards development, residential, retail, and hospitality-focused buildings will sit alongside vast open spaces and cultural venues. The diverse range of uses will ensure a year-round, 24/7 atmosphere. A number of existing buildings will be preserved and reworked, including the historic Bulletin Building, maintaining a connection to the past amid shiny modern skyscrapers.

Design Committee Says Blatstein's Mega-Development Still Needs Work



Quote:
At yesterday's monthly Civic Design Review meeting, members called design changes made to developer Bart Blatstein's superblock project "perfunctory" at best.

The updated design proposal for the highly contested project at 1001-29 S. Broad Street did address some of the advisory committee's suggestions from the March meeting. In particular, it included a new "grand" staircase leading to the fourth-floor European-style retail village. It also slightly shifted the proposed building on Broad and Carpenter by 60 feet.

Still, the new proposal did not address the height of the 32-story tower, which is the most-contested part of the project among residents. One resident of the Hawthorne neighborhood who lives across the street said, "We don't want a 32-story tower. Where I live, I will be looking out to a total wall."

Albert Hicks, another Hawthorne resident who has met with Blatstein multiple times, pointed to a number of other developments along South Broad Street that have remained in the five- to eight-story range, including Carl Dranoff's 777 South Broad project.

Committee chair Nancy Rogo Trainer said, "It still feels like a wall between South Philly and Center City," adding that he should consider going back to the drawing board.

Given that it is Blatstein's second presentation to the committee, he is not required to return for another meeting.

Schuylkill Yards will fundamentally change the city, especially if it looks anything like that! It will look like a cyberpunk dreamscape at night if they use the right lighting package like most other new skyscrapers in Philly!

Schuylkill Yards' First Built Tower will be a Lab-Office Building



Quote:
There will also be 2 million square feet of residential space

The first major building at Schuylkill Yards, Drexel University's $3.5 billion development, will be a 700,000-square-foot property that will serve as a lab and office space.

Joe Ritichie, vice president of development for Brandywine Realty Trust, shared that update at a panel discussion today as part of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Spring Meeting. Brandywine Realty Trust is the main developer behind Drexel's Schuylkill Yards project, which will transform 14 acres of land in University City into an innovation hub.

Ritchie also shared news that there will be 2 million square feet of residential space at Schuylkill Yards, including one stand-alone residential building and a number of mixed-use buildings. "They'll be a mix of high-end, luxury and market rate units," he said.

The entire project timeline is about 20 years, though, so don't expect much of this to happen any time soon. The lab-office building won't be built until 2020.

In fact, the first major project will be transforming a 1.3-acre plot in front of One Drexel Plaza and the Bulletin Building into an elliptical green space that will serve as the hub of activity of Schuylkill Yards. Ritchie said they hope to begin construction this fall.
