Curious how long this version has been in the works. I don't know much about the logistics around renderings, but it looks like that might be an incomplete Comcast building in the background.

This looks great; and the location is quite key.

I have to ask this; Will there be plans for anything opposite of this new tower on the west bank of the river because if so this tower will be a great gateway into downtown Philadelphia

There are plans for the lot across Walnut from the FMC tower, but other than that I don't believe so.

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is ‘essentially full,’ so it’s pumping $3.4B to expand

Quote:
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, bursting at the seams on its University City campus, has unleashed a $3.4 billion building boom.

Outside of University City, CHOP’s plans include a second research tower across the Schuylkill River on land where the Roberts Center for Pediatric Research opened in 2017 and is home to 1,048 researchers. The second building there, slated to open in 2024 at a cost of $600 million, will expand CHOP’s capacity for traditional, or “wet-lab," research.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I wonder if CHOP has any plans to add to it's research tower on the west bank that was designed and built to accommodate additional height. I think it is called the translational research building; it was planned to be built in two stages, each of about 12-15 stories. It seems to me that not having to do any site work and foundations would be both a cost and time savings. But CHOP never seems to be hurting for money--------

I am probably not the only person who was struck by the name of the neighborhood -- "Devil's Pocket" -- which is pretty vivid.

I can pull up the time frame for it later today. I feel a little more comfortable discussing expansion plans now that it's all public in the Inquirer. The facilities documents I saw last year were clearly marked 'CONFIDENTIAL - DO NOT DISTRIBUTE'

Edit: It looks like it should be July 2022 - July 2023.

CHOP’s Roberts Center For Pediatric Research Phase 2 To Rise 350 Feet





Quote:
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is in the process of a $3.4 billion expansion in West and South Philadelphia. The latest proposed structure is the Roberts Center for Pediatric Research Phase 2, a 350-foot-tall tower planned at 730 Schuylkill Avenue in South Philadelphia. The new structure will stand as a fraternal twin to the first phase of Roberts Center, a 375-foot-tall building completed in 2017. Project information remains sparse, but the design will likely be led by the office of Pelli Clarke Pelli, which designed the first phase.

From the highrise thread:

The Schuylkill Avenue project will help CHOP add research capacity within its campus — a goal it set out in the master plan — and is expected to be completed in 2024.

The Hub is well underway and will allow the hospital to decamp some spaces at other buildings on its campus and shuffle some employees and departments so that it can demolish the Wood building, which is where the new patient tower will rise.

CHOP is also building a 175,000-square-foot facility at 63rd and Market streets that will serve as a centralized supply chain and logistics management site for materials, products, food and other items used throughout CHOP’s campus.

^^Thanks McGrath! Eventually we'll make new threads for these two. The Schuylkill Ave tower looks like it would be "690 Schuylkill Ave" or something like that.

The current parking lot nearby the CHOP HQ was zoned to hold a second (or third) building and the plans thus far look great. Hopefully this becomes a reality for the next two years or so. Other projects and buildings I'm not fond of, but it looks good.
