The New York Times came to Philadelphia to report on the latest developments surrounding Schuylkill Yards. The story details the $3.5 billion effort with Brandywine Realty Trust to create an innovation hub for technology and life sciences around the Drexel campus.
Drexel Square, the new park under construction, is called the linchpin to the development. The first tenant, Spark Therapeutics is also highlighted. The story also mentions that Schuylkill Yards has many of the requirements Amazon is looking for in its search for a second headquarters.
But as the story points out, even if Amazon does not come here, Schuylkill Yards is “well placed to meet the demands of the businesses that it seeks.”
