Brandywine is apparent choice to develop Drexel 'Innovation Neighborhood'

Drexel University has apparently selected Brandywine Realty Trust to develop a huge swath of land it owns between its campus and 30th Street Station into a massive mixed-used project the school has discussed for the property.

An email sent to members of Philadelphia's real estate community and others invites recipients to a Wednesday event at which Drexel president John Fry and Brandywine chief executive officer Jerry Sweeney will "unveil plans for the future of University City."

Drexel officials have said for months that the university was in the process of choosing a developer for the project, which it has referred to as an "Innovation Neighborhood." Sweeney has said Brandywine is in the running for the job.
