The Science Center and Wexford Science + Technology have broken ground on 3675 Market Street, a 345,000 SF lab/office building and the latest development project at uCity Square. The Science Center and CIC will be anchor tenants in the new building -- and new partners in supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in Greater Philadelphia.
Key features of the new building:
- New headquarters for the Science Center and its nationally-recognized tech commercialization and business incubation programs
- CIC’s unique model for building innovation ecosystems that support serial entrepreneurs and startups as they scale and grow. CIC will lease a total of 127,000 SF. In addition to shared office space, CIC’s premises will include 20K SF of shared wet lab space.
- A larger 15,000-square foot Quorum space. With the capacity to offer more meetings, events, and programming for uCity Square residents and the wider community, the new Quorum is positioned to serve as the nucleus of the innovation community in the Greater Philadelphia region.
- 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail available to the market
Separately, these are powerful components. Together, they will disrupt and accelerate innovation and entrepreneurship in Greater Philadelphia. By joining forces, Wexford, the Science Center and CIC are leveraging their core strengths to take innovation and entrepreneurship to the next level and support the region’s entrepreneurs and innovators.
