The skyline of University City, West Philadelphia, has started to transform again as a large number of developments are on the way to change its profile. Among these, the 14-acre Schuylkill Yards development is on top of the list, which counts several confirmed towers: 3001 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, 3025 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, and 3151 Market Street along with 3025 Market Street, and Drexel Square. The east tower and 326-unit west tower were designed by the Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, while 3151 Market Street was designed by Gensler. The entire project was developed by Brandywine Realty Trust.
3025 Market Street
Interior work has recently been completed at the Bulletin Building at 3025 Market Street in University City, West Philadelphia. The building, which is the first structure within the Schuylkill Yards complex, rises nearly 100 feet above the ground and stands five stories tall, with a new modern exterior and freshly renovated floor space. The building renovation was designed by KieranTimberlake and the Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, with the latter also having designed Schuylkill Yards’ first skyscrapers, Schuylkill Yards East at 3025 John F. Kennedy Boulevard and Schuylkill Yards West at 3025 John F. Kennedy Boulevard. Brandywine Realty Trust is the developer for both the building and the entire 14-acre complex.
The 14-acre, multi-tower Schuylkill Yards development is gaining traction as completion nears at the first building, the four-story Bulletin Building at 3025 Market Street in University City, West Philadelphia. Originally built in 1954, the commercial building has been incorporated into the greater development and overhauled on the outside and inside by developer Brandywine Realty Trust, which is responsible for the whole Schuylkill Yards project, and Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, which is also designing a number of buildings in the development. The modern renovation includes office, lab and science space, as well as 10,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor. Spark Therapeutics is the building’s primary tenant.
Built in the mid-1950’s, the Bulletin Building at 3025 Market Street in University City has started to become a hub for new development. When the entire Schuylkill Yards complex is complete, the Bulletin Building will be surrounded by the new towers, bringing a huge amount of space to University City in old and new buildings alike. The Bulletin Building is undergoing renovations with the main stages already complete.
