Love this project. The design isn't incredible, but it's nice enough, has a lighting scheme, and FINALLY we have a building that will eclipse 400 feet tall in the UCity Medical Center area. :cheers:

Absolutely love what they are doing with the streetscape/plaza. This will make a real difference for people who could be facing a difficult situation.

CleetMcDougle May 24, 2022 5:07 PM

This. I like this. That lighting scheme is really cool.

JohnIII May 24, 2022 7:56 PM

Notice this is the same rendering in the CDR, but it's noticeably unfinished as the design is not finalized and the model of the CHOP Hub is also not finished and blended in

Interesting that they're intentionally reducing parking footprint. I generally support that, not sure if it's a great idea for a major hospital though (thinking about families here, not so much employees). Also, the new bridge connecting the current main tower and Buerger to facilitate the demolition of Wood is under construction.

Woah that lighting scheme is amazing! They've really been knocking the LED schemes out of the park recently.

Impressive. I believe this will be the tied with Cira Center for the 2nd tallest building in Univ City. Hopefully not for much longer though!

Walked by the project today. There is significant activity including demolition and site preparation underway. Also a lot of signage. This is a go.

Wow! Is Cira Centre the oldest building of the bunch? That was the early 2000's. It was a daring design and even more daring location at the time. It's just crazy how UC's skyline has exploded since then. Someone post a before/after photo please!

It's fully moving but there's a lot of foundation and other prep work left like a new skybridge. Demolition of the old building isn't scheduled until Q1 2023 so this tower won't be above ground til next year sometime

This building is THICK. It looks deceptively small in renderings but I feel like this tower will really make a huge impact.

I was surprised but I saw it's over 1.2 million sqft

I... actually think this is beginning prep work. Drove by today and there was a big sign up saying "DUE 2028", and Osler was closed to all traffic.

Yes, Osler Cr has been closed since April for full time prep work. Theyve been working on the garage underground for the future foundation. Wood is still being used actively and needs to be demoed (planned Q1 '23) first so it'll still be a long time before this is actually off the ground.
