Jefferson Campus Residents Tower
- Joseph Sauers
Within the urban fabric of Philadelphia our research of the health and quality of life and climate change impacts informed the anticipation for extended housing capabilities on the universities campus. The project will vertically extend the campus green pedestrian spine through a series of 8 neighborhoods to create Jefferson’s vertical town. The tower will accommodate housing for seniors, hospital staff, students, and the high-end residential market. Neighborhood 8 will enhance Philadelphia’s green infrastructure, provide housing for essential workers, and generate profits for Thomas Jefferson University to expand its healthcare expertise to the people of Philadelphia and beyond the city’s boundaries.
