Main Line Health has detailed its plans for the 75 acres in Wynnewood that are home to St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, saying that it will focus on a health and wellness concept, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The development on the site that Main Line Health acquired for $43.5 million in 2019 will take shape over the following 10 years or more. It will be anchored by medical offices that will provide general healthcare, fitness and wellness, and educational services, as well as social activities. The development will also include senior housing, a small hotel, apartments, and condos, along with retail space.

It is still unknown how much the project will cost and when construction will start. The seminary is expected to leave the property by the summer of 2024.

The health system purchased the seminary campus from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The site currently has two primary structures on it: the seminary and the Ryan Memorial Library complex that is home to offices, dormitories, and administrative space. The buildings cannot be demolished due to their historic designations.
