  • High-end residential is on its way to University City. Will there be demand to meet the supply of these luxury units? 
  • Capital from outside of Philly is pouring into University City. Now that investors have taken notice will we see the neighborhood explode? 
  • With life science lab and office spaces on the way, will University City become the new 'hot spot' to work?

  

How You'll Do More Business: University City is seeing more development than any other neighborhood in Philadelphia. Learn about the new projects that will change the neighborhood forever. 

  

Who You'll Meet: Investors, owners, developers, brokers, city officials, engineers
