Capital Improvements | 150,000 SF | Blue Bell, PA


L2Partridge is honored to be partnering with Kairos Real Estate Partners on this exciting opportunity to re-envision the future of 980 Jolly Road.  The design team was tasked with developing an interior and exterior renovation strategy for the asset. Major goals for the project include modernizing the appearance of the building and creating up-to-date amenity spaces to attract future tenants. 

The building consists of two wings with a central glass enclosed atrium space.  Key concepts of Simplicity, Activation and Connection serve to organize the design and provide the groundwork for all future design activities.  

The exterior renovations will primarily address the building’s two main entrances. Grand gestures at each of the two entrances will be created to provide a sense of arrival.  The main visitor entrance at the atrium will be reoriented and expanded and new signature canopy feature will be created.    
 


L2Partridge and Kairos expect renovations to be complete later this year. 

Design partners include:  Bruce Brooks & Associates Engineers, P2 Structural Engineering, Momenee Civil Engineers, Glackin Thomas Panzcak Landscape Architects and Cohere for branding services. 
 

The interior renovations will consist of the creation of a new training facility, Café and Grab & Go at the main employee entrance.  The atrium space which serves as the main building lobby and visitors entrance will be renovated with a wood feature wall to activate the space and integrate warmth into the space.  The balance of the renovations in the atrium serve to unify the two wings of the building and create a more user-friendly experience within the space.  

Site Renovations will address the building’s presence on Jolly Road & Union Meeting Road. Renovations to the existing patio between the two buildings are also being explored with the goal to create a comfortable atmosphere that can be thought of as an extension of the tenants’ workspace.
