Type of Project: Shopping Center Renovation / Transformation Size: 257,000 SF
Lincoln Plaza was a tired shopping center in need of a transformation not just a refresh. Tenants were relocated and repositioned to accommodate a new Grocer, new to market tenants were introduced to the roster and a complete makeover of the façade was completed along with new landscaping, amenities and FF & E. The end result is a packed parking lot including 10 AM on Mondays!
DIGroup Architecture Budd Bioworks Philadelphia, PA The BEST STRATEGIC CAMPUS PLANNING of 2022
Type of project: Multi-Phase Redevelopment / Bio Manufacturing Size: 650,000+ SF In the heart of Philadelphia’s life sciences “Eds & Meds” innovation corridor, DIGroup is spearheading the strategic planning of the former Budd Factory site as a bio-manufacturing hub with state-of-the-art lab space. The firm has been tasked with creating a unified, urban campus with an array of community gathering spaces. A central amenity structure – repurposed from its original use as a power building – will serve as a visual anchor with a towering brick smokestack. It will be enhanced with and surrounded by an outdoor plaza, water features and a curving Budd Factory graphic-history wall. The plan integrates vehicle parking, truck access, loading/receiving areas and security that are key functional requirements for a successful bio-cluster campus.
