COURTYARD PHILADELPHIA SOUTH AT THE NAVY YARD EXPANSION

Size17,000 SF
LocationPhiladelphia, PA
OwnerEnsemble Real Estate Services, Inc.

The Courtyard Philadelphia South, which opened in 2014, was the first hotel in The Navy Yard, a vibrant, mixed-use development in South Philadelphia. The hotel enjoyed such significant success since opening that the demand for additional rooms was realized within the first three years of operation. In order to increase the number of hotel rooms by 25% while allowing operation of the existing hotel to continue, INTECH led a Design/Build effort, arriving at a scenario involving westward expansion of the building towards the parking lot. The number of lost parking spaces resulting from the expansion was minimized and construction was closely coordinated with hotel management to avoid disruptions to hotel guests. The five-story expansion includes eight guest rooms on each floor and integrates cleanly with the existing west wing of the building. Mirroring the design of the existing hotel, the exterior wall is a combination of rain-screen aluminum panels and a field-applied porcelain tile on a back-up exterior wall system. Environmentally-conscious landscaping complement the LEED certified building. Attention was also paid to acoustical issues given the building’s close proximity to the Philadelphia International Airport and major highways.
