The five-story parking garage at 900 Locust Street in Market East, one of many parking garages in Center City slated for redevelopment, remains active as per Philly YIMBY’ recent site visit. Jefferson Health plans to replace the garage with the Jefferson University Caroline Kimmel Biomedical Research Center, which will stand 170 feet and 12 stories tall. The structure will be located on the between Walnut Street and Locust Street and will add 220,000 square feet of space medical center’s campus, which takes up a major portion of the neighborhood. Designed by Payette, the glass-walled facility will bring a unique design to the neighborhood.

The proposal was unveiled at the end of 2019, coinciding with an announcement that Sidney and Caroline Kimmel had given Jefferson a $70 million gift for the building. The building is expected to be constructed at a total cost of $300 to 350 million and will connect to the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience building to the north and to the Bluemle Life Science Building to the west by a nine-story sky bridge. There are currently no signs of demolition as the garage remains active.
