Schuylkill Yards is a next-generation innovation community, intentionally designed and holistically created from the ground up through a partnership between Drexel University and Brandywine Realty Trust. Longfellow has been retained by Brandywine to develop the lab and innovation space components of the master plan totaling nearly 2 million square-feet. As part of the larger Philadelphia innovation ecosystem expanding on both sides of the Schuylkill River, the location is unmatched because of its connection between the city’s economic and education centers, while sitting at the region’s major transportation hub. This nexus will drive economic activity and growth for the city, and is buoyed by access to talent and capital. As curators of the neighborhood, Drexel and Brandywine are committed to embracing a culture of ideas and to ensuring that this community of start-ups, established companies, researchers, artists, residents and visitors is inclusive and diverse so that innovation, creativity and opportunity is available to all.
