I definitely prefer the redesigned "staircase" of window box things on what I assume is the rear/side of the building. The original design was a little too scattershot and seemingly randomly shaped for my liking.

SmartLabs Announces Plans to Expand High-Performance Laboratory Facilities in Philadelphia

Quote:
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Capitalizing on Philadelphia’s emergence as a national hub for cell and gene therapy, SmartLabs, a Boston-based Laboratory-as-a-Service (LaaS) leader, today announced plans to open its first facility in the city in addition to SmartLabs’ advanced resourcing in Boston and the Bay Area.

SmartLabs will locate in a portion of the new life sciences research facility at 3201 Cuthbert Street that is set to become the largest life sciences research and production space in the city upon completion in 2025. The facility is centered in the heart of Drexel University’s campus, which is creating a vibrant presence and ecosystem of innovation in and around University City. The new 508,000 square foot facility, developed by Gattuso Development Partners in partnership with New York-based Vigilant Holdings, will offer advanced R&D, vivarium, and manufacturing suites. SmartLabs will occupy two floors in the building

“We are thrilled to announce our expansion into Philadelphia to bring our advanced infrastructure and operations platform to the region’s scientific innovators,” said Amrit Chaudhuri, CEO and co-founder of SmartLabs. “Philadelphia has a trailblazing community of companies advancing cell & gene therapies, and SmartLabs’ new facilities will improve their scientific outcomes, accelerating time from discovery to commercialization. SmartLabs has already supported dozens of biopharma companies in the national biotech hubs of Boston and San Francisco, and we believe that Philadelphia’s exciting CGT market and proximity to prestigious academic institutions makes it an ideal third geography.”

Philadelphia is home to a booming cell and gene therapy (CGT) ecosystem which will benefit from the colocation of R&D labs, in vivo suites, and clean rooms capable of cGMP manufacturing. By licensing SmartLabs’ state-of-the-art laboratory facilities rather than investing substantial time and money in building new space, biopharma companies can focus on their science and get new treatments to patients faster.

With this expansion, SmartLabs will establish its seventh location – the company currently operates four facilities in the Boston area, with one currently operational facility in San Francisco and another under construction – and bring its total nationwide real estate to 550,000 square feet. The new building, owned by an affiliate of Gattuso Development Partners and Vigilant on a site which has been leased on a long-term basis with Drexel University, is yet another life sciences collaboration for the firm, which has its development roots in the renaissance of The Navy Yard as a hub for life sciences research and production facilities.

“SmartLabs is revolutionizing the way scientists access and work in laboratories, and we are thrilled to support their mission to accelerate science,” said John Fry, president of Drexel University. “Many of Philadelphia’s CGT companies are investigating treatments for rare and orphan diseases, and the ability to reduce costs and ramp-up time can be critical for them. We look forward to SmartLabs’ presence in Philadelphia R&D and to the scientific advances that will come out of their facilities.”

“We are tremendously excited about partnering with SmartLabs to accelerate the development of research facilities in the new building,” said John Gattuso, co-founder and co-principal of the firm. “SmartLabs is a national leader in the LaaS field, and in addition to the tremendous opportunity it presents for our project, its expansion reaffirms Philadelphia’s growing recognition as a national hub for life sciences, especially in the field of cell and gene therapy.”

^ Excellent news! The momentum keeps going.

This should be sent to all the anti-Philly trolls on social media.

It says two floors which should be about 90k SF based on the CDR package.

I don't get anti-Philly trolls who live in the metro area. If their desires were fulfilled and the city fails, then all of the suburbs and exurbs that surround it will be less well-off. Nearly as much as Philadelphia needs a strong region, this region needs a strong Philadelphia. After all, tourists aren't coming from far and wide to see Aston, Cherry Hill, Bensalem, Smyrna, and Elkton: they're coming to immerse themselves in all the city has to offer. The stronger a city Philadelphia is, the more attractive the entire PA-NJ-DE-MD becomes.

I'm with you, I don't understand it. The same can be said for rural PA, why wish failure on the states largest economic center?

But you can't argue with crazy and/or stupid, and most trolls have a motive, so facts and real life go over their heads.

But the city will keeping improving either way, especially if Kenney's replacement is competent and motivated.

If this wasn't already known:

"Transfer of the land to Gattuso Development will occur in early October, and construction is expected to begin later in the fall."

Some other great info in that link too.

Façade renovation of Disque Hall, I wonder if that is cleaning and repairs or a full renovation.

SEPTA headhouse at 30th Street expected to finish next year.

And the big news, Spark is planning groundbreaking on the lab building in the fall?? I assume a CDR package if forthcoming?

The massing is a bit off to me but that could be because this is lab space. Overall though, it's a nice project. The design is pretty cool.

Some time ago somebody purpose a lab and manufacturing building of the three sided lot right at the curve in the tracks, where there presently is some kind of low white building on part of the lot. Anyone ever hear anything about those plans? Since it seems like 3 or 4 buildings might be under way at the same time, might as well toss one more in the mix. Doesn't the Science Center have plans for starting a new build right next door to the one that is just now wrapping up construction?

The project is called Ultra Labs and as far as I know it is still looking for an anchor tenant. They probably don’t have the capital to build on speculation like Drexel or Brandywine.

This project is being developed by Republic Properties. They certainly have the capital to build on speculation.

Last I heard, there is still ongoing planning work with SEPTA, but the project is still a go.
