FSA's Michael Yanoff Helps Drexel University Expand

Drexel University and American Campus Communities continue to transform University City with a new tower at 34th Street and Lancaster Avenue in the Powelton Village section of University City that could house up to 1,300 students.

FSA attorney, Michael Yanoff, worked with Drexel University and the City of Philadelphia throughout the planning process and helped the project meet City zoning, planning and permitting rules and regulations.

The new project is in line with Drexel's master plan for the campus and would sit on the southwest corner of 34th and Lancaster.

In addition to the student housing, the ground floor of the building would also offer significant retail space along Lancaster Avenue and an impressive double height student dining commons on the 34th Street side of the building. With all of this retail, the building would make a great new gateway for the Lancaster Avenue commercial corridor, adding life to what is now a fairly dead block that divides the rest of the corridor from the heart of Drexel's campus.
