New Construction Ahead:

Pending city approval, Penn plans to build a multi-use complex on the Redevelopment Authority land now used for commercial parking at 34th & Chestnut, EVP John Fry announced Wednesday to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Projected are classrooms, labs and some short-term housing, plus retail space and a parking garage for nearly 800 vehicles. Like the Penn-owned Sheraton Hotel next door, it would be low on the Chestnut Street side (five stories), then rise to 19 floors. Total projected cost is $111 million.


New ICA Director:

Claudia Gould, now exectuive director of a New York alternative gallery called Artists Space, will take office in September as director of the Institute for Contemporary Art at Penn. She succeeds Patrick T. Murphy, who headed the ICA for nine years before returning to his native Dublin as director of exhibitions for the Royal Hibernian Academy.
