Schuylkill Yards is a next-generation innovation community, intentionally designed and holistically created from the ground up by Brandywine Realty Trust, who was designated as master developer by Drexel University, the project’s primary landowner.
As part of the larger Philadelphia innovation ecosystem, Schuylkill Yards’ location in University City is unmatched due to its connection to the City’s economic and education centers, and proximity to the region’s major transportation hub. This nexus drives economic activity and growth, 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 startups, established companies, researchers, artists, residents, and visitors is inclusive and diverse so that innovation, creativity, and opportunity is available to all.
