Drexel Square is a 1.3-acre urban park located at the corner of 30th and Market Streets, directly across from Amtrak’s 30th Street Station. This project marked the first phase of the Schuylkill Yards Innovation District Master Plan, 14-acre transit-oriented community development by Brandywine Realty Trust in partnership with Drexel University.

The scope of work included the conversion of an existing parking lot adjacent to the former Bulletin Building into a community park and civic plaza for residents, students, workers, and travelers in University City to enjoy.

The greenspace features a 12,064 SF elliptical lawn with access point from all sides, a network of granite paving and seat edges, and a small urban oasis at the Market Street gateway to University City. The park is filled with raised planter beds under the canopy of 30 dawn redwood trees and fitted with 60-foot light poles.
