Urban Outfitters Corporate Campus that located in Philadelphia, United States, was designed by Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. (MS&R), Urban Outfitters’ headquarters, housed in five buildings in the historic Philadelphia Navy Yard, provides design studios and offices for the company’s distinctive retail brands while celebrating the idiosyncratic remnants of 125 years of shipbuilding.
Urban Outfitters, Inc. – which owns clothing and housewares brands Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, and Terrain – was the first major non-shipbuilding corporation to move to the decommissioned Yard. Previously scattered across downtown Philadelphia, the client wanted to develop a unified corporate campus.
Urban Outfitters’ pioneering move has positively impacted the entire Navy Yard. A new creative district, with top advertising agencies, graphic designers, and photographers, is growing around the retailer. New coffee shops and restaurants serve workers and visitors alike. More than 4,000 jobs have been created in the Yard since the company moved.
