3000 Market is the oldest building in the area IIRC. I would actually like to make it historic -- its façade would certainly add interest to whatever gets built on top.

I think that building would make a great tower base.

I just noticed that this rendering shows 2 towers on the north side of Drexel Square. The 30th Street Station District tower and the Schuylkill Yards tower. Just thought that was interesting. That hole where the tracks are exposed bugs me. I didn't think there would be enough space for a tower without combining the 2.

30 st st

Demo work has started on the garage where the supertall is supposed to go. They’re starting with the west facing wall.

They can't fully demo that building tho, unless they've moved the engineering labs again? Perhaps they're just removing the part that doesn't have them.

(This is also why I suspect the 3001 block of Chestnut will get fully developed before the 3101 block of Market -- the eventual permanent engineering labs should end up down there, and they will also in all likelihood be a key component in whatever tower ends up getting built at 31st and Chestnut.)

According to Brandywine's 3rd quarter earnings call, they've begun the design process for a 400,000 square foot life science building.

https://www.fool.com/earnings/call-t...ings-call.aspx

Relevant portion:

Quote:
On Schuylkill Yards, full master plan approvals are completely in place. The design development is substantially complete on the first two buildings. Final pricing on those buildings is under way.

Marketing efforts continue with a pipeline still around 1.5 million square feet, including significant interest from life science tenant. We are in very active discussions with joint-venture financing sources on it to provide equity for the project. Our existing investment base aggregating approximately $90 million will be sufficient to meet our equity requirements in the contemplated equity joint venture structures on those projects at our targeted 35% hold. So no additional cash requirements are anticipated on our Schuylkill Yards starts.

Prior to starting either tower, we will have final construction pricing locked down and all equity and debt financing committed and announced as part of any start announcement. Given our read on the residential market, we could be assuming the above conditions are met in a position to go on the West Tower in the next couple of quarters. The East Tower, which is predominantly office and a potential life science component, does require an active tenant, as well as having those cost and financing conditions met prior to any start.

A final point worth noting that you'll see on the page in the supplemental is that our Schuylkill Yards master plan can accommodate almost 2 million square feet of life science space. Given the strong demand drivers we're seeing in that sector, we have also commenced the design development process for a 400,000 square foot dedicated life science building that could commence construction very late in 2020, or early '21, in a joint venture with our life science partner.

Installation of the windows has begun:


The glass has what I can only describe as a "typeface" print on it. A bunch of serif letters.

Here's a closer look at the glass, shared by the Schuylkill Yards twitter account:

Wow, that was quick. They've installed about half of it already.

But it's just on the park facing side - the Market Street facade hasn't been touched...is that the plan? Kinda bizarre.

AFAIK yes, that is the plan. That never occurred to me...

Yup, I believe that was always the plan, but here's a rendering from the site:

Literally window dressing on the bulletin bldg. They should of done it too on the Market street side. I think it's going be hard to polish this turd in its current and incomplete rework.

I think you mean figuratively? Unless you're making a joke about the type. But this is an entirely new facade.

Anyway, I think it looks good. Glass is high quality. Opens up nicely to the park.

Yeah but it kind of looks like dog shit along market - a minor street in our city’s grid - so it’s tough to call this redo a clear win...

I don't think it looks like dog shit. I kind of like the stone ribbon on the sides. It grounds it.
