Just one month before the unveiling of the one of the largest developments in Philadelphia’s history, Brandywine Realty Trust and Drexel University tapped Brownstein Group to support media relations for the project, Schuylkill Yards. The 14-acre master planned innovation neighborhood in University City will eventually consist of 5 million gross square feet of mixed-use real estate. A landmark project for Brandywine, Drexel and the City of Philadelphia.
A brief history on Schuylkill Yards…the development project is the culmination of a great vision in urban planning that Drexel University set its sights on nearly 20 years ago. After compiling parcels of land around its campus and Amtrak’s 30th Street Station, in 2015, Drexel University launched a national search for a master developer to put its vision for Schuylkill Yards into action. Philadelphia-based Brandywine Realty Trust was selected, and the announcement of the Drexel-Brandywine partnership and Schuylkill Yards master plan was set for March 2, 2016, at a high-profile launch event.
