Another first for the PA/NJ/DE CCIM Chapter: an early look at the groundbreaking, 49-story, 730-foot-tall luxury mixed-use skyscraper called the FMC Tower at Cira Centre South by Brandywine Realty Trust.
A select group of 50 commercial real estate professionals, Certified Commercial Investment Members (CCIMs) and their guests were treated to a walkthrough of the cutting-edge facility that combines iconic architecture with the latest in advanced engineering and LEED-based sustainable design. The preview was led by Steve Rush, Brandywine Realty Trustâ€™s Vice President of Leasing.
The event was held on Level 28, the shared amenity floor, which deluxe amenities include a skyline terrace with fire pits; hydrotherapy spa; state-of-the-artÂ fitness facility; 72-foot lap pool; media lounge and theatre; yoga studio; golf simulator, and much more.
â€œTransit-oriented development is the future,â€ explained Steve Rush, who also oversees all of Brandywineâ€™s leasing efforts in Philadelphiaâ€™s Central Business District. He continued to explain to the attendees that Brandywineâ€™s vision for the future includes 14 acres of development, named Schuylkill Yards, adjacent to 30th Street Station â€“ one of the top three busiest train stations in the country. This future development by Brandywine Realty Trust and partner, Drexel University, includes 6.9 million square feet of office space, retail space, lab/technology space and a dedicated green space.
