Community College of Philadelphia

Sited at the southwest corner of the Community College of Philadelphia campus, the Business & Industry Center serves as a gateway from Center City. Complementing the historic U. S. Mint building nearby, the new building features classical proportions with contemporary detailing. Three floors of academic spaces front onto Franklintown Boulevard and Callowhill Street and feature a two-story atrium entered through a high public arcade.

The 96,000-sf building design incorporated smart classrooms, student support and faculty offices, and dedicated spaces for the college’s digital information systems, continuing education, and adult learning programs. On a lower level, an additional 72,000-sf parking deck accommodates 130 cars.
