In July, PIDC, Philadelphia’s public-private economic development corporation, announced its selection of a team comprised of Ensemble Real Estate Investments and Mosaic Development Partners as its development partner to steward the next phase of development and growth at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Selection of the Ensemble/Mosaic team was the culmination of a year-long competitive process that attracted interest from more than 35 development teams from across the country.
In order to deliver a vibrant and cohesive campus that accommodates the ambitious development proposed by Ensemble/Mosaic, PIDC and Ensemble/Mosaic will complete an update to previous master plans for the Navy Yard campus. This 2021 update will reflect development that has occurred since the 2013 update, plans for a new mixed-use program on 109 acres, and updated planning for key areas of the Navy Yard. The master plan will include campus-wide amenity, placemaking, sustainability, transit, and connectivity plans to integrate Ensemble/Mosaic’s 109 acres and these additional sites with existing development throughout the Navy Yard. The planners will also coordinate their work with the existing development being planned at the Navy Yard by Ensemble/Mosaic and other development teams.
PIDC and Ensemble/Mosaic seek proposals from qualified, experienced, diverse, and inclusive firms to provide a comprehensive master plan. PIDC and Ensemble/Mosaic welcome submissions from coordinated teams of firms with diverse experiences that, together, can deliver on the project scope in its entirety. Submissions will be evaluated, in part, on the demonstrated commitment to diversity in the proposal team, including meaningful and significant project roles for M/W/DSBE firms.
