Jefferson expands in Navy Yard of South Philly

Jefferson Health System announced plans to open a new 70,000-square-foot adult health and  wellness facility in the Three Crescent Drive office building at the Navy Yard in South Philadelphia by mid-2018.

The Navy Yard is increasingly becoming home to many businesses, including GSK, Iroko Pharmaceuticals, Urban Outfitters headquarters, Philadelphia 76ers, Tasty Baking Co. and Penn Capital Management.

Public transportation to the Navy Yard feels limited, despite the two free Navy Yard shuttle routes that transports visitors and employees to the Navy Yard from Center City, and AT&T Station on the Broad Street Subway Line. As the Broad Street Line Expansion project seems far from reality, it will be interesting to see if Navy Yard transportation will expand with growing tenants.
