Reinventing the Navy Yard

“We can be ourselves down here,” says cofounder Anthony Bucci, who started RevZilla.com along with his two best friends and fellow riding enthusiasts, Nick Auger and Matt Kull. “It was a great move to relocate to The Navy Yard. We’ve exceeded our wildest expectations.”

The Navy Yard is a modern, sustainable urban campus that arose from the ashes of the former Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. PIDC is the master developer for The Navy Yard, where more than $1 billion has been invested creating a vibrant waterfront home for over 11,000 employees and more than 145 companies in the office, manufacturing, and research and development sectors, including Aker Philadelphia Shipyard, Rhoads Industries, and GlaxoSmithKline.

RevZilla.com – a forward thinking tech and ecommerce company distributing premium motorcycle apparel, parts, and accessories – recognizes why the South Philadelphia campus is so attractive for growing businesses.

RevZilla worked with PIDC and its development partners Liberty Property Trust/Synterra L.P. to relocate its office, showroom, and warehouse to a new, state-of-the-art headquarters at The Navy Yard Commerce Center. After just a year, RevZilla expanded again, renovating a 65,000 square foot warehouse and fulfillment center and adding 60 new workers to a staff of more than 100 – impressive growth for a company that started in an Old City living room in 2007.

“The city is our home, and we’re excited to continue growing here,” says Anthony. “PIDC helped us build a building that fit our needs and connected us with potential  properties that could accommodate our quick growth without losing a beat.”
