CHOP is developing approximately 8.4 acres of land across the Schuylkill River from the Hospital’s Main Campus between the river and Schuylkill Avenue in a multi-phase project. The first building will consist of 466,000 square feet of clinical research and office space and is estimated to open in 2017.
Since 2013, CHOP has held numerous meetings with the surrounding community to share our plans and has received approval from the City of Philadelphia Planning Commission for the project.
- CHOP presentation to the Philadelphia City Planning Commission — The Commission recommended approval of the zoning relief sought by CHOP, while encouraging the Hospital to continue to work with neighborhood businesses and civic groups, and seeking rezoning of the Hospital’s parcel of land in the future.
