Drexel outlines ambitious plans to build business-residential enclave

Quote:

Drexel University president John Fry wanted his campus to expand into an adjacent neighborhood of innovative businesses, bustling storefronts, manicured parks, and soaring residential towers.

So he decided to build one.

The 125-year-old school is teaming with developer Brandywine Realty Trust to transform an expanse of parking lots and industrial buildings between its campus and 30th Street Station into a dense new urban enclave to be called Schuylkill Yards.

The expansion is meant to accommodate a student body that has grown from fewer than 7,000 in the mid-1990s to about 26,000 today, while attracting tech firms, biomed labs, and forward-thinking start-ups to the area, Fry said in an interview before Wednesday afternoon's formal announcement of the project .

The development is the latest - and perhaps most prominent - major project in a burst of real estate activity in and around Philadelphia's University City district of educational, medical and research institutions.

The Radnor-based company will oversee a team for Schuylkill Yards that includes residential developer Gotham Organization Inc. of New York and life-sciences specialists Longfellow Real Estate Partners of Boston. It will be the first project in Philadelphia for both firms.

New York's SHoP Architects will develop the project's streetscape and architectural standards, while Dutch firm West 8 designs its landscapes.

Brandywine's deal with Drexel gives the developer a long-term lease for the property, and grants the university first dibs on space in Schuylkill Yards' new and redeveloped buildings - along with favorable leasing terms - for classrooms, offices and labs.

Other financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. The development will cost "well over a couple billion dollars" and will generate more than 10,000 construction jobs and about 15,000 permanent jobs, said Sweeney, who was unable to provide more specific figures.

The project is being built in an area designated as a Keystone Opportunity Zone, which gives companies with offices there breaks on some city and state taxes in return for creating jobs or making large investments.

The first phase of the project is expected to take 15 to 20 years, during which development will be concentrated within a 10-acre site bounded by 30th, Market and 32nd Streets and the rail yards north of Drexel's campus.

The partners aim to break ground before the end of this year on a 1.3-acre park, which will displace a parking lot between 30th Street Station and the former offices of The Bulletin. Next comes renovation of that 1950s newspaper building itself, since redubbed One Drexel Plaza, with a new sieve-like facade.

Drexel and Brandywine hope to break ground on the development's first new construction project, a tower to house labs and offices at the northeast corner of 31st Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, by early 2018. Later work during the first development phase calls for a mixed-use skyscraper west of the former newspaper building, which Sweeney said could rise as high as 950 feet, towering over the 730-foot tall FMC Tower.

In later decades, work will shift to a 4-acre area bounded by Market, 30th, Chestnut and 31st Streets, where two more towers are planned.

COMMENTING SO THAT WHEN I'M CHECKING THIS THREAD IN 20 YEARS I LAUGH AT MYSELF.

But seriously pinch me I'm dreaming.

Knight Hospitaller Mar 2, 2016 7:29 PM

An observation to separate the actual project area from surrounding rendering "fluff":

On the site plan, there is a clear dotted-line delineating the Schuylkill Yards development area. It does NOT include the Cira II site, the Firestone site. There are basically four major patches in the SY plan: (1) The block b/w the IRS building and the highline (b/w Market and Chestnut), (2) the Bulletin site and parking lot, (3) the rest of that long block between the Bulletin/highline and the Food Fair building (the large building next to Firestone where the vestigial tail of JFK Blvd curves, and (4) the long lot between the Cira II site and 32nd street, curving along the SEPTA rail yard.

Drexel University Unveils Massive $3.5B Schuylkill Yards Development Plans

https://cdn1.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/OFr...IMG_4480.0.JPG

Quote:

In a flashy press conference this afternoon held in a tent on One Drexel Plaza, Drexel University announced its 20-year plan for Schuylkill Yards, a $3.5 billion and 14-acre project that will aim to transform West Philadelphia into a leading innovation hub of the region.

Drexel president John Fry announced that Brandywine Realty Trust will be the developer of the master plan. The development company has long had a stake in University City as the developers of the Cira Center, the EVO building, and the up-and-coming FMC Tower.

Fry described Schuylkill Yards as a "new neighborhood based on innovation" with "world-class, open space in the tradition of the public square of Philadelphia."

The master design reveals multiple public spaces, each with their own distinct characteristics. A 1.3-acre plot—currently a parking lot at One Drexel Plaza—will become an elliptical lawn and the center of activity at Schuylkill Yards. NY-based SHOP Architects and West 8 landscape architecture firm have designed the master sites.

Eight new high-rise sites will also be part of Schuylkill Yards, a mix of a laboratories, hotels, retails, residential units, and offices. NY-based Gotham Organization, Inc. will lead the residential development, and Longfellow Real Estate Partners will take on the Life Sciences component.

In addition, the historic Bulletin Building, designed by architect George Howe, will undergo exterior renovations that will include a dynamic front screen along the east facade facing the elliptical green space.

Brandywine Realty Trust president Jerry Sweeney said, "This is not a corporate campus. It's a fully-engaged ecosystem."

Though the Schuylkill Yards timeline involves a 20-year buildout, it is expected to begin construction as soon as possible—starting with Drexel Park, a 1.3-acre park at 30th and Market Streets later this year.

"We expect to deliver phase 1 several years from now," said Sweeney.

Fry noted that they will be actively partnering with local businesses and unions, as well as maximize hiring of local residents. It's expected to create 10,000 construction jobs and 15,000 employees and residents.

"This is a game changer—not just for Philadelphia," said state Senator Vincent Hughes. "The innovation that happens inside Schuylkill Yards will have an impact internationally."

Drexel, Brandywine to develop new $3.5B neighborhood called Schuylkill Yards

Quote:

Drexel University and Brandywine Realty Trust unveiled Schuylkill Yards, a $3.5 billion new neighborhood that will be constructed over two decades and create a community focused on innovation.

Brandywine was officially named master planner on Wednesday for the development that will span over 14 acres and, at build out, consist of five million square feet of office, lab, residential, hotel, retail and open space.

“We’re always looking for game-changing projects and this project, Schuylkill Yards, is a game changer for the city, the region and a game changer for the commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said state Sen. Anthony Williams. “The innovation will have a national impact.”

Brandywine (NYSE: BDN) is just starting the approval process, said Jerry Sweeney, CEO of the Radnor, Pa., real estate investment trust.

So that would be the building right next to the Cira II site? Any rumblings about an announcement for the latter? Maybe we'll get two towers underway at the same time? It would probably be more efficient that way on that little patch between 30th St. and the highline.

Knight Hospitaller Mar 2, 2016 10:27 PM

For all of the fussing about the highline on the high-rise development thread, note that a portion of the current lowrise building behind the Bulletin extends beneath it. The site plan for SY is simply contemplating the same thing for whatever new project is built there.

crackpinky Mar 2, 2016 10:33 PM

Hot damn this is awesome! Only downside is the wait. The first building isn't projected to start until 2018. Brandywine and Drexel do seem serious about getting this off the ground though. Hoping that this and uCity Square gets built too.

Not to nitpick but I see 7 buildings in the renderings, not 8??

UCity square is starting work already.

And Drexel/Brandywine said they would like the first tower to be under construction by 2018, which means work on the first one could start next year (2017).

And there are 8. One on the 3000 block of Chestnut, two along the 3000 block of Market. Two along the 3100 block of Market, including the tallest, and three along JFK between 30th an 32nd.

Shwayze1994 Mar 2, 2016 10:40 PM

If this gets built to fruition, than Philly may have a skyline to easily compete with Chicago as the US's second best skyline. Also didn't it say something about ShOP designing it? This could be great!!

cafeguy Mar 2, 2016 10:49 PM

"a tower to house labs and offices at the northeast corner of 31st Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard" - from the press release

I would assume that would be the building on the plan (about the 3rd post or so in this thread) directly north across JFK from the current Bulletin building and closest to 30th street.

would that be the lot next to the old CiraII location?

also in looking at this maybe its time to move the taxi stands to the west side of 30th to take advantage of the development

I believe there is a 30th Street Planning meeting on the 16th of March or open house and am sure this will be more interesting with all this news

Yeah "NE corner of JFK and 31st" isn't very descriptive, since there currently is no corner of 31st and JFK. Summers thinks it's the shorter one on the east side of the highline. That would be right next to the Cira II hole over the tracks. The other building on the N. side of JFK is a larger and taller structure that mostly stretches to the NW of where 31st St. will come in.

That's what I think. Hopefully Cira II will be announced in the coming months and that stretch can be under construction all at once.

I think, as KidPhilly and Knight Hospitaller said, it is the building closest to Cira Centre and 30th Street station, sitting on JFK Blvd directly north of the Bulletin Building. It will sit on what is currently a surface parking lot in between the CSX Train High Line and the hole looking down into the train tracks where Cira II will eventually go.

What's up with the pre-boiled spaghetti facade on the super-tall? Does anyone know of any existing buildings with that type of design?

I love this project. I just thought the exterior looked kind of funny at first glance.

Jawnadelphia Mar 3, 2016 12:11 AM

Not sure when this was first presented, many years ago no doubt, and it's still hanging in the back of 30th Street station as a reminder of the possibilities for the area. With today's news, a version of this grand dream seems to be finally realistic. Obviously many things need to occur, including some 2 decades of constant construction. But - today marks what may very well be that pivotal moment. Mark it down, boys! 3/2/2016. :cheers:

Amazing development!

Trying to comprehend how Cira II is going to fit in there. Cira II is rumored to be a super tall, so there would be two new super talls in University City within blocks of each other.

An outstanding proposal indeed, will pull the skyline over the river, but easy on the Chicago comparison, its not that close.

volguus zildrohar Mar 3, 2016 12:47 AM

Intensely optimistic...for a change. That's a massive program which I hope means a great deal of research was done into the potential for private sector growth to support it. The KOZ designation is obvious and necessary but the most important piece - the human capital - is what needs building right now. The timeline of the proposal is certainly smart if paired with some educational investment (starting at the pre-college level) to ensure its viability. That's an area where everyone invested in the success of this proposal comes in. This is Philadelphia...not quite yet at the point of being able to sustain such a large program on the strength of our reputation alone like other cities. There's time built into this project. I hope that it's smartly used.

I believe there is an obvious connection between this proposal and the proposal being pushed by Brandywine for property tax reform. I am ready to write our senators/representatives if they really have research suggesting that we can accelerate job growth in the professional sector to levels unseen in a very long time. I am optimistic.

UrbanRevival Mar 3, 2016 1:35 AM

Truly stunning master plan! Despite the robust ambition, this is exactly the kind of tangible vision that Philly/Pennsylvania leaders can coalesce around to make a reality via policy changes and other economic development tools. The city can much more easily make its case for tax reform with these exact types of plans.

Very true, and that's an excellent idea.

Aside from anticipated trends due to tax reform, I do think the 20-year timeline will also be able to capitalize on some very unsustainable real estate trends in the other 3 major East Coast hubs of DC, NY and Boston, whereby these cities are on an undoubted path of really pricing out startup firms and even middle-class professionals themselves--much moreso than they are now.

Tie in the very real threat of climate change beginning to effect cities directly on the coast and suddenly Philly also looks like a slightly more inland urban haven.

Of course, the long-term timeline forces us all to think more abstract about things for which there is no firm prediction, but the point is there are multiple trends that will likely converge in the coming years that will only make Philly an ever-attractive economic stalwart.

Jelly Roll Mar 3, 2016 3:09 AM

I would not be surprised if this gets built in less then 20 years. The developer has the funding to build all of it and given the prime location and the healthy level of tax incentives I think it is going to shock people how much demand there is for this project. Add in the lack of new office space in Philly along with the already established viability for new apartment construction and it is a perfect storm for this development.

Drexel, Brandywine Take Wraps Off Schuylkill Yards

Quote:

The next big step in the evolution of University City into Philadelphia’s “second downtown” began this afternoon inside a tent next to One Drexel Plaza, where Drexel University President John Fry and Brandywine Realty Trust CEO Gerard Sweeney unveiled the master plan for the new mixed-use “innovation neighborhood” they will create together. They also announced its name: Schuylkill Yards.

The development, which will be built in several phases starting in a few months and stretching over 20 years, will contain about 5 to 6 million square feet of space when fully built out. About 55 percent of the total will be office space, with the rest a mix of laboratory space and residential buildings, with street-level retail throughout and a landscaped public park at its heart.

Accordingly, the central public space, to be called Drexel Square, is part of the project's first phase. Work on the 1.3-acre park across from 30th Street Station and the transformation of JFK Boulevard west of the station into a pedestrian-friendly promenade will begin later this year, followed by a reimagination of One Drexel Plaza, the former home of The Evening Bulletin, starting in early 2017. The first new building, a 700,000-square-foot office building with street-level retail across JFK Boulevard from Drexel Square, should get under way in late 2017 or early 2018.

Fry sees this project as a major step towards making the Schuylkill a focal point for a greater city center instead of a dividing line between Center City and University City.

Also speaking along with Fry and Sweeney at the formal unveiling ceremony were City Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, Bruce Katz of the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Center and Jim Bean, vice president of retail at Apple Inc. and a Drexel alumnus.

This proposal looks AMAZING and I can't wait for work to begin.
One question- because this is a Drexel project does that mean that none of these properties, when competed and after the 10 year abatement, will be subject to real estate taxes?

A possibility to consider: The little shed is being kept in part because that part of the old press building is simply too expensive to remove, what with the High Line itself being right over it.
