A new bill introduced in City Council will rezone a parcel of land at 41st and Market streets in West Philly from an auto-oriented commercial district to CMX-4, or a high-density commercial mixed-use designation. According to PlanPhilly, the site currently houses a Pep Boys, but there are plans for a sequel to the LEED Platinum-certified office building constructed on a nearby lot at 41st and Filbert streets, called 2.0 University Place. The planned 3.0 University Place development will also be certified LEED Platinum and will be a Trophy Class A commercial office building. The developer University Place Associates plans on establishing a "Platinum Corridor" of environmentally-friendly office buildings between 38th and 42nd streets, according to PlanPhilly.
