Mapping major University City projects in the works

Rendering by SHoP Architects/West 8

University City has been booming for years now, transforming the west banks of the Schuylkill River on a daily basis. And the eds and meds hotbed claims it's only getting started.

That's according to University City District's lastest report, the State of University City 2017, which just dropped this week. The 76-page booklet is stacked with stats about the neighborhood's current state and future, including the fact that it experienced a staggering 2.6 million square feet of new development in 2015 alone. That represents an investment of more than $1.3 billion.

And more than a dozen projects are still in the works, which we've mapped here. Some caveats: These projects are listed in order of expected completion date, from 2017 to 2050. They are 100,000 square feet or more, and they're currently under construction, under major renovations, or have yet to break ground.
