The once historic National building known for its famous orange façade has finally been demolished after almost 20 years as a vacant structure in Old City. The building incorporates the existing orange façade of the National Products Headquarters and pays homage to the mid-century modern architecture of the prior complex. Dale Corp. is the Construction Manager for the 207,000 sf, mixed-use development which will rise six stories and include 192 apartments, lower-level retail and underground parking.
Demolition has been completed at the Pep Boys site at 41st and Market Street to make way for 3.0 University Place, a LEED Platinum-certified office building complex for the corner of 41st and Market. Dale Corp. has been selected as the Construction Manager  for the 190,000 sf, five-story structure that will boast state-of-the-art eco-friendly features such as a skin of photoreactive glass. The building  will incorporate four office floors with open work space, covered parking for 106 cars with preferred parking spaces for hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles (AFV), inviting ground-floor commercial space, beautiful landscaped living roof with it’s own natural ecosystem, efficient heating and cooling system, wind and solar-generated energy and secure bicycle parking.
