Working with Drexel University, SHoP and West 8 developed the master plan for Schuylkill Yards, a collaborative mixed-use neighborhood in Philadelphia.

Within the fourteen acres of its master plan, Schuylkill Yards will feature a mix of entrepreneurial workplaces, educational facilities and research laboratories, corporate offices, residential and retail spaces, hospitality and cultural venues totaling 5,000,000 square feet, as well as 6.5 acres of new public open space.

Central to the scheme is a reimagined One Drexel Plaza abutting a new 1.3 acre multi-functional public space, Drexel Square.

A robust new pedestrian network connects the existing neighborhoods with the adjacent Amtrak 30th Street Station, the third-busiest passenger rail station in the country.
