Students from the University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia University are putting their heads together for the project.

They brainstormed on topics like the use of green materials at a meeting Tuesday.

Their ideas will be combined with others to design a 1 million square foot business district on Market Street, west of 40th Street.

Also, developers unveiled the plans for 2.0 University Place, which is the first phase of the green corridor.
