Last Fall, we told you about the planned expansion at the Wistar Institute, in the heart of Penn‘s West Philly campus. Over the last six months, a large building in the middle of their Spruce Street complex has been razed, paving the way for the new building, designed by Ballinger.

By the time the students come back in September, we’re guessing work will be underway on the new building at this site, which will offer a new, ultra-contemporary look to Spruce Street. Hopefully, the construction will move along quickly, inconveniencing pedestrians, cars, and food trucks for as little time as possible.
