CHOP PAOB Philadelphia, PA

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is adding another high-rise to its dense complex of medical buildings in University City. The 17-story Physician and Administrative Office Building will rise at the corner of East Service Drive and Health Sciences Drive, just south of the hospital network’s Buerger Center building, to which it will be attached. The building is comprised of 565,000 square feet of office space, along with a fitness center, auditorium and other amenities. The tower, designed by Chicago-based architects Perkins & Will, is to feature a facade of painted aluminum in a “sawtooth pattern” supporting windows that span nearly ceiling-to-floor in the building’s interior.
