University City Undergoing Remarkable Changes

According to a recent article in the Philadelphia Business Journal, University City construction is booming. The addition of new cutting-edge facilities including healthcare buildings, university science centers and office structures, has created a constant flurry of construction activity in this neighborhood. With these new changes occurring in Philadelphia, companies and residents are looking at University City as a place to “put down roots.” 

Madison Concrete is already present in this neighborhood, with two recent project contracts. The first is Drexel University Lancaster Square – a 24-story residential building located at Lancaster Avenue and 34th Street. Working for Hunter Roberts on the project, Madison will be performing all facets of cast-in-place concrete including foundations and structural concrete for the low-rise section, tower and parking plaza. The project is slated for completion in the summer of 2015. Read more here.November 2013-e-blast photo-1-32

The second project awarded to Madison is located at 3601 Market Street. This 28-story Class AA mixed-use building is located on the 17-acre University City Science Center campus, known as the nation’s oldest and largest urban research park. Madison’s contract is for the foundations and concrete-frame superstructure.  The new building will open in 2015 and will represent the first residential structure at the research park.
