Since acquiring 1,200 acres of land from the federal government at the site of the former Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in 2000, PIDC has been the master developer of the Navy Yard, managing its transition from a closed shipyard to a growing and thriving riverfront neighborhood located along the Delaware River featuring a mix of historic buildings and new high-performance and LEED certified construction oriented around world-class open space. Dubbed “America’s Coolest Shipyard” by Politico, the Navy Yard is now home to more than 170 employers and more than 14,000 people who come to work every day and there is enormous capacity for growth. PIDC’s Navy Yard team is responsible for making the Navy Yard a great place to work, visit, invest, and develop and works with partners and stakeholders to guide the property’s overall management and development, including marketing, leasing, social programming, development, planning, transit connections, infrastructure development, utility operations and property management.
