Penn, Longfellow Plan Philly Life Sciences Complex at Pennovation Works Campus

The University of Pennsylvania has selected a developer for a life sciences facility that will join the Ivy League school’s Pennovation Works incubator along the Lower Schuylkill.

Longfellow Real Estate Partners, the nation’s largest private developer of life sciences buildings, will lead the construction of three new buildings covering 455,000 square feet at 3401 Gray’s Ferry Ave. The 23-acre Pennovation Works is adjacent to Penn’s campus on a former DuPont industrial site, where the Pennovation Center opened as an entrepreneurial and research hub in 2016. 

The new life sciences facility will be segmented into 387,000 square feet of research and development space and 68,000 square feet of biomanufacturing space, with rooftop terraces offering views of Philadelphia’s skyline and Penn’s campus. The main complex will have two adjoining six-story buildings with flexible lab and office space for tenants.
