Construction on the first Philly-based project designed by Danish starchitect Bjarke Ingels is chugging along, based on some videos and photos that were recently posted on Instagram.
The project, developed by Liberty Property Trust, is called 1200 Intrepid and broke ground at the Navy Yard in June 2015. The design by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is meant to connect with the circular nature of the adjacent Central Green park, which was designed by James Corner.
In a press release earlier this week, Liberty Property Trust announced that it leased 26,000 square feet of space to Penn Capital Management Company. The total square footage of 1200 Interpid is 91,901 square feet.
1200 Intrepid is expected to be ready for occupancy later this year.
