The Navy Yard
Liberty Property Trust
Pennoni Associates, Inc.
A.P. Construction, Inc. was chosen to complete the corporate center infrastructure expansion project at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Most of the multi-million underground utilities installed support the 1.5 million square foot Corporate Center expansion. Companies such as Urban Outfitters, GlaxoSmithKline, Iroko Pharmaceuticals, and the Marriott, to name a few, have decided to make the Navy Yard their home.
AP’s completed work includes the installation of storm, sanitary, water, gas, electric and tele/data underground facilities beneath the newly named “Rouse Boulevard” – from the intersection of Crescent Drive to League Island Boulevard – and outspreading into each new cross street in the development.
In addition, all of the streets have been graded and paved, together with curbing and draining. The landscaping & hardscaping, in the entire complex, was also accomplished by AP, which involved storm water management rain gardens, tree pits, lighting, pavers, crosswalks and planted medians, as well as future parking sites.
Thanks to AP, and other development entities’ efforts, a new state of the art and beautiful Navy Yard neighborhood is now emerging, and will continue to attract and retain world-class companies in the years to come.
