Construction at the Drexel College of Nursing and Health Professions in University City in West Philadelphia has been underway for the past few months, and the steel structure currently rises high enough to start making an impact on the skyline. Designed and developed by Wexford Science & Technology LLC, the 185-foot-tall structure will feature a façade with a mix of staggered glass of varying shades. The structure now rises seven stories tall, just past halfway on the way to its eventual 12-story height. The building is a part of the 14-acre uCity Square project that will dramatically raise the profile several city blocks.
