Drexel Square receives Pinnacle Award of Excellence from the Natural Stone Institute.
Drexel Square has received a Pinnacle Award of Excellence winner in the category of Public Landscape/Parks/Memorials by the Natural Stone Institute of America. The award was announced at the Awards Ceremony on January 28th.
West 8's Drexel Square project transformed a vacant, underutilized, parcel into a dynamic mixed-use innovation hub. Serving as the gateway into University City from the Center City and 30th Street Station, Drexel Square is a key part in the Schuylkill Yards Master Plan. Positioned in front of the Bulletin Building, the team designed an over 11sq. km elliptical green lawn, custom made granite benches, outdoor furniture, lighting, and raised planter beds filled with shrubs and perennials.
