The Science Center has been starting a new building every 18 to 24 months, along with non-SC buildings. Presently the apartment complex on Powelton Ave, the nursing school from Drexel and the new K-8th public school have all been announced. Plus it sounds like the next lab type building has been designed to some degree. All this is to say if Meds and Ed stays hot the build out might not take 10 years. I wouldn't be surprised if Penn Presyb. is a prime tenant of another building (which would also mean more parking since Penn is committed to the car), throw in the hotel if that ever happens and the space left to build on isn't much.
