Wexford Science + Technology and University City Science Center Officially Open New 3737 Science Center Building in West Philadelphia

Wexford Science + Technology and the University City Science Center hosted the grand opening of the new 3737 Science Center life science building on the Science Center campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Developed jointly by Wexford and the Science Center, 3737 Science Center provides approximately 334,000 square feet of premier laboratory and office space at the epicenter of Philadelphia's renowned "eds and meds" community that is home to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University, as well as The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, University of the Sciences and The Wistar Institute. The new building, the 16th on the Science Center campus and the second by the joint venture between the Science Center and Wexford, cements the Science Center's reputation as a world-class innovation center and enhances Wexford's presence in University City. Tenants of 3737 Science Center include Penn Medicine University City; Spark Therapeutics, a cutting-edge gene therapy start-up that spun out of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia; Good Shepherd Penn Partners, which operates the Penn Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine; and The Rose Group, owner of the Corner Bakery Café which is expected to begin service on the ground floor of 3737 Science Center at the end of 2014.
