Biotech Company Plans to Hire 200 Employees at uCity Square
Global biotechnology company Amicus Therapeutics signed a 75,000-square-foot lease at University City Science Center’s Class A office building in downtown Philadelphia.
The uCity Square facility at 3675 Market St. will serve as Amicus Therapeutics’ (Nasdaq: FOLD) global research and gene therapy of excellence location, where the company expects to house 200 employees over the next few years.
Developed by Baltimore-based Wexford Science & Technology, the 350,000-square-foot building delivered in 2018. The 5-Star, 14-story structure is across from the 36th Street and Market Street light rail station, and the research center is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2019.
A group of Amicus research employes have already moved into a temporty space at BioLabs@CIC Philadelphia during construction of the permanent space.
Amicus Therapeutics’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Crowley said in a statement, ”The proximity to our collaborators at the University of Pennsylvania and other major academic centers and hospitals in the area also provides a tremendous opportunity to advance our commitment to gene therapies. Philadelphia is easily accessible to New Jersey, which has been a strong contributor to our success and will remain the location of our global headquarters.”
