Get rid of 3101 Market
It houses the Philadelphia Parking Authority, the Philadelphia City Archives and the offices of some contractor, but we know it best as the entrance to Drexel’s “Garden Level” classrooms: 3101 Market St. It’s a monstrosity and should be demolished as soon as possible to make way for new and better developments.

Construction at Drexel: Will it end?
The Drexel community has long awaited the completion of the University’s latest construction projects on campus. Oh, how we long for the creation of the impressive LeBow business building with its walls made of glass and modern architectural structure or the inviting open lot that is perfect for the springtime, which we dearly refer to as the Quad. The excitement of the future Chestnut Street, consisting of upcoming vivacious commercial stores and comfortable student apartments, has spread across the entire Drexel population. The Drexel Master Plan is vigorously advertised as a guideline to how the University campus will soon show improvement to become the campus that prospective students will absolutely drool over. Looks like Drexel’s got such a bright future.
