Best Adaptive Re-Use Project
Gilbane Building Company | Arlen Specter U.S. Squash Center
Partnering with U.S. Squash, Gilbane Building Company artfully transformed the historic Philadelphia Armory – formerly a military drill hall – into the new Arlen Spector U.S. Squash Center, the world’s largest squash center and the “center” of squash in the United States. Located on the campus of Drexel University, the project places a modern squash and community facility within an historic and architecturally significant setting. The building, first constructed in 1916, features striking truss work and now features 20 courts, a newly constructed mezzanine level, bleachers for court viewing, locker rooms, a retail shop, a lounge center, and a physio center.
