Center for Healthcare Technology Tops Out

Workers and the IMC team at the Center for Healthcare Technology in Philadelphia celebrated the topping out. IMC Construction began the structural steel erection of the design-build project in September for the $200M, 19-story tower. Located on one of the last parcels at 3600 Civic Center Boulevard in Philadelphia, the facility will create a new gateway to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The first phase of construction is approximately 300,000 square feet and will support a daycare for employees, information technology personnel, and human resources.

As a critical function to the support of the tremendous research that occurs within Penn Medicine, an Investigational Drug Study (IDS) Pharmacy will be housed to provide investigational drugs to and through the Penn Medicine Health System. The building will also house a Freezer Farm to promote collaboration among researchers for their samples as well as their data use in large clinical studies that move modern medicine forward.

Due to the tight setting, and the logistical constraints of working within the boundaries of three busy streets in University City, the project took months of preconstruction planning, modeling, prefabrication, and site phasing prior to the start of construction.

Luxury Community Opens on Philly’s Main Line

Behind the wall of sycamores, oaks and pines adjacent to the Wynnewood train station, a new 250-unit apartment building, the Maybrook, is now welcoming its first residents. Built by IMC Construction, Maybrook is a four-story, 345,000-square-foot luxury apartment community of one-, two- and three-room units near shops and transit.

“The building materials were high-end inside and out,” said Robert Cottone, president of IMC Construction. “We built for residents who value comfort and elegance, a natural setting and walkable community.”

Maybrook units range from 727 to 1839 square feet and feature quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood floors, walk-in closets and full-size washer-dryers. Amenities include a two-story fitness center, cyber lounge, clubroom, swimming pool, paddle tennis courts and an adjacent 464-space parking garage.

The community sits on 28 acres of the 44-acre Maybrook estate with a celebrated 1881 Scottish-style mansion, carriage house and several out buildings. Unused for decades, the historic mansion and grounds will be restored and renovated to serve the Lower Merion community as a special events site. A dog park and upgraded walking trails to nearby Narberth are part of the landscape design, as is restoring the original Japanese garden and grounds.

“This is a carefully-sited, sustainable, smart-growth project with extensive strategies for storm-water management, traffic control, and deep setbacks from the road,” said Cottone. “It has been a pleasure to work with Jefferson Apartment Group and Haverford Properties on this forward-thinking development.”

Maybrook is a joint venture among Jefferson Apartment Group, Haverford Properties Inc. and Lowe Enterprises Investors. The design team includes KTGY Group Inc. architect; Momenee Inc. civil engineer; Environetics MEP engineer; and Alliance Engineers structural.
