Download Project Overview
Brandywine Realty Trust, a full-service real estate investment trust, had a vision to transform 250 King of Prussia Road (rebranded as 250 Radnor) in Radnor, PA. The existing 170,000 square-foot medical facility had an outdated aesthetic and required extensive improvement and replacement of its building systems. NORR was selected to undertake the repositioning project with the goal of infusing new life into the building to respond to market conditions, changing demographics, evolving tenant demands and new leasing models.
The key design concepts were to increase the amount of daylight, improve the building envelope and create a sense of arrival to attract potential tenants. The initial plan was to transform the building to a Class A office complex, but there was growing demand from the Life Sciences sector for flexible lab and research space. Undertaking a due diligence review of the building’s infrastructure, clear heights, slab loading and column bay spacing facilitated the project’s pivot to a modern Life Sciences hub.
The facility’s large floor plates provide continuous open spaces, strategically designed to accommodate customizable fit outs. Multiple healthy building practices were integrated including touchless entry, high performance HVAC system, 24/7 air handling units and high-end antimicrobial finishes. The lobby is rich with amenities that feature a self-serve coffee bar and lounge, providing space for independent work or team collaboration.
The reimagination of 250 Radnor resulted in new leasing opportunities for Brandywine Realty Trust, flexible lab and research space for tenants and infuses new life into an existing building.
