In yet another move to make University City an entrepreneurship hub, the University City Science Center announced that next month construction will begin on a 273,000 sq.ft. 11-story building that will house medical facilities and office and lab space for startups.

The Science Center and its partner, Baltimore-based Wexford Science & Technology, plan to spend more than $15 million on the project, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

From the press release:

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center will occupy approximately 155,700 square feet for orthopedics and outpatient medical facilities. In addition, Good Shepherd Penn Partners will occupy an additional floor and a half in the building. Subject to Penn Presbyterian’s expansion rights, the Science Center and its joint venture partner, Wexford Science + Technology, will control the remaining 88,000 square feet in the building for other uses related to the Science Center’s mission of supporting tech-based innovation, entrepreneurship and economic development in the region.
