Swarthmore Town Center West Project Wins ULI Award

June 15, 2017

Swarthmore College's Town Center West project was a winner of a Willard Rouse Award for Excellence at the Urban Land Institute Philadelphia event last night. The Willard G. "Bill" Rouse III Awards recognize superior development projects in Eastern and Central Pennyslvania, Southern New Jersey, and Delaware. Criteria for the awards include factors beyond innovation in planning and design, including adaptability to other communities, sustainability, economic success, overall community health and social impact to address neighborhood revitalization goals. 

From the finalist description on the ULI site:
Swarthmore College developed a diverse team to tackle a variety of needs in Swarthmore Town Center West. Engaging the borough and college in a zoning overlay and a referendum, engaging PennDOT and numerous other public partners in replacing a confusing and dangerous intersection, and providing a mix of uses to both physically and socially connect the college and the borough in a culmination of 15 years of planning, study, and strategy.

The project got top billing in the Philly Mag article covering honorees. 

Aegis provided project management services on the project and continues to provide PM services to the College.
