Drexel University engaged Coscia Moos Architecture to assist with the relocation of the selected Electrical Engineering and other groups to their new Innovation Neighborhood. This first step in what is envisioned to be a sizeable expansion of the university's campus is located in a building once housing the Philadelphia Bulletin newspaper printing facility. The 50,000sf floor plate was carefully planned to accommodate freshman teaching spaces, wet labs, social sciences teaching spaces, offices, faculty research labs, maker space and a large machine shop to support the freshman teaching curriculum. The addition of skylights and allowance for wide hallways and wayfinding nodes helped to ameliorate the deep footprint of the space. A new exterior entrance stair was added on the south side of the building both to facilitate vertical communication within the building and to signify with a welcoming beacon the expansion of the campus across the busy Market Street corridor.
