Each space was kind enough to talk us through what each space offered; which ranged from traditional co-working spaces, build-to-suit opportunities, and event spaces for corporate meetings and events with a broad range of amenities.

April 22, 2021 Repurposing Existing Buildings to Fulfill New Needs


On Earth Day, April 22, we appropriately held a panel discussion on adaptive reuse and examined two Philadelphia projects along with a Mall conversion to medical use in Nashville, TN. The panelists were Joe Ritchie who took us inside the conversion of the Bulletin Building into Life Sciences space for Spark Therapeutics; Ned Edwards who led the effort to convert the Philadelphia Armory on Drexel’s campus into the finest squash facility in the world and Lorie Damon who provided great insight into the Nashville Mall conversion.

Attendees were able to learn what to look for in an adaptive reuse project and some of the keys to a successful project. Images of the projects were shared so that all could get a visual of the before and after view. Thanks to our sponsor IMS Technology Services , the committee members and especially our panelists for an interesting discussion.
