Penn Medicine to transform former Syms site on Route 70 Syms storefront
Earlier this week, we were proud to announce that a division of the University of Pennsylvania has signed a long-term lease to transform the former Syms department store site on Route 70. Clinical Practices of the University of Pennsylvania will redevelop the site, which has been vacant since Syms closed in 2012, into a state-of-the-art, 150,000-square-foot medical office facility that houses multiple clinical disciplines, including urgent care, oncology, radiology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology and primary care. The project represents an approximately $50 million investment in Cherry Hill, and solidifies the Township's reputation as a growing epicenter of medical services in the region.
