After completing the first two major phases of Schuylkill Yards (Drexel Square and the nearly finished Bulletin Building), developer Brandywine Realty Trust is ready to launch the next phase of the project, further transforming University City in West Philadelphia. One of the two planned towers is the 361-foot-tall, 28-story tower at 3025 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, which ranks at number 15 on Philly YIMBY’s December 2020 Development Countdown. Designed by the Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, the 326-unit structure will offer office and laboratory space in the broad lower floors and residential space on the upper levels.
New renderings have been revealed for the Schuylkill Yards megadevelopment situated on the western bank of the Schuylkill River in University City in West Philadelphia. The project has been in planning for years, and construction has finished on the Bulletin Building as well as Drexel Square, the first phase and center point for the development. Earlier this year, construction timelines have been announced for three more proposed towers. Now, developer Brandywine Realty has unveiled more renderings with updated designs.
Construction timelines have been released for three skyscrapers that are a part of the Schuylkill Yards mega development in University City. The three buildings will range from 185 to 512 feet and from 14 to 34 floors.
It’s no secret that Schuylkill Yards is bound to change the University City skyline, but what is kept secret is the development at Schuylkill Yards until they’re revealed. The mega development was unveiled at the beginning of summer 2016 with out-of-this-world proposals, but it turns out they were all placeholders, since 3001 and 3025 John F. Kennedy Boulevard were officially unveiled last year. Fast forward to 2020, and 3151 Market Street has also been formally revealed, and it will stand 185 feet tall.
The Schuylkill Yards development is on the verge of breaking into the University City skyline in West Philadelphia. Permits for a new 361-foot, 28-story, mixed-use office and residential tower at 3025 John F. Kennedy Boulevard were approved in early December 2019. The tower is one of many slated for the 14 acres of land just to the northwest of FMC Tower. A new park, Drexel Square, was completed last year just east of the Bulletin Building.
