PHILADELPHIA | CHOP University City Tower | 380 FT | 22 FLOORS

Title: CHOP University City Tower
Project: Medical/Clinical/Outpatient
Architect: ZGF & Ballinger
Developer: Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Location: 3401 Civic Center Blvd, Philadelphia, PA
Neighborhood: University City
District: West Philadelphia
Floors: 22 floors
Height: 380 feet

Although no address is specified for the University City tower, renderings appear to place it somewhere near at the intersection of Civic Center Boulevard and Osler Circle, apparently at the site of the Wood Pediatric Center at 3401 Civic Center Boulevard, a six-story, Postmodern structure. The building will stand 22 floors tall and come at a price tag of $1.9 billion, serving as a new patient center with 300 beds. All rooms in the tower will be single-patient units, something that CHOP will intends to implement in all of their hospitals.

The high-rise will stand near the CHOP Hub for Clinical Collaboration, a 19-story tower that is quickly rising into the skyline. The latest proposal will rise even more prominently above the surroundings, likely standing as the tallest building in the University City hospital cluster upon completion. This tower will also feature an all glass façade, with stylish curved corners giving the building a smooth look.

The University City tower has a planned completion date of 2027.

I remember hearing rumors few years back that there was plans to knock Wood down and rebuild. This looks to be the case.
