Whoa: University City Science Center looks to double in size

A planned 4-million-square-foot expansion is in the works.

The University City Science Center’s empire could soon expand in a serious way.

The research park has slowly been adding buildings — like last fall’s 3737 Market Street tower and the in-progress residential project at 3601 Market Street — but this move would be the most significant expansion to date: a potential addition of 4 million square feet, which would double the Science Center’s footprint. That number “assumes a similar density of buildings and tenants to our existing campus,” said spokeswoman Kristen Fitch. “Future expansion is dependent on the mix of tenants we attract.”

From the release:

These opportunities include development of the former University City High School (UCHS) site, adjacent to the Science Center, and the three remaining open parcels on the Science Center’s existing campus: 3400, 3800 and 3850 Market Street.

The expansion would be in partnership with developer Wexford Science + Technology, a frequent Science Center partner. It’s another step in realizing a vision for a so-called “Innovation District” in University City.
