Erdy McHenry Architecture's design for The Global Innovation Center fronts League Island Park in the Philadelphia Navy Yard with a two-story loggia engaging the unique urban condition to provide a welcoming gateway for visitors and employees. The building will feature a west-facing facade that frames views of the Park while providing solar shading for the building's interior. Just two blocks away from Central Green, the building's location allows employees to take advantage of The Navy Yard's unique outdoor amenities essential in creating the campus-like setting.
The 175,000 square foot technology center and Research and Design facility will include office space, labs and a small batch manufacturing facility. Project construction is expected to be completed in September 2017.
