Project Description

The historic renovation and tenant fit-out of six buildings at the Naval Business Center in Philadelphia, PA, is the headquarters and corporate campus of Urban Outfitters, Inc.

Urban OutfittersBlue Rock completed the fast-track historic renovation and fit-out of over 290,000 square feet in just under 12 months. The simultaneous exterior renovation and interior fit-out included a central plant, data center, corporate headquarters, design studios, kitchen, cafeteria/servery, and site work to connect the buildings.

The Urban Campus houses over 600 employees who perform all the functions necessary to support the company’s retail stores, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People, throughout the world.

Urban Outfitters and Blue Rock Construction were awarded the National Preservation Honor Award for the work on this project.

“Urban Outfitters continually places their trust in Blue Rock, and Blue Rock responds by listening to our needs while paying attention to all the details and nuances reflected by Urban Outfitters,” said Dave Ziel, URBAN Chief Development Officer. “Blue Rock goes the extra mile to ensure that the project represents the vision that Urban Outfitters conceptualized. It is in that spirit of teamwork and achievement that Blue Rock continues to be our builder of choice.”
