DESIGN BRIEF | NOVEMBER 2017
Philadelphia and Wynnewood, Pennsylvania
Rodin Square and the Whole Foods Market at Philadelphia Center City are now officially open, creating two MV+A additions to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway cityscape. The Whole Foods Market celebrates Philadelphia’s industrial identity, takes advantage of the city views, and introduces several new food venues. The 60,000 SF grocery (pictured below) also provides an anchor to the Rodin Square block, which features a two-acre roof garden and pool for 293 residential units.

MV+A TEAM FEATURE
Sarah has been part of the MV+A team for over a year as our Administrative Assistant. She’s the voice on the other side of the phone when you call the office (feel free to say hi!), and also helps to support marketing and presentation efforts, operations, and our newly redesigned website.
On city life:
“I grew up in rural north Georgia, then went to school in rural Virginia, so DC is the first city I’ve lived in. This winter, I’m planning on frequenting the modern art gallery of the National Portrait Gallery, and the Rodin sculptures in the National Gallery.”
On the MV+A office:
“I feel lucky that our office is beautiful. The architects here were intentional about the combination of wood paneling, concrete floor, earth tones, and exposed ceilings and beams, to create a soothing, organized environment to walk into every day.”
Whole Foods Market Wynnewood Opens
The Whole Foods Market at Wynnewood, PA, pictured here from Wynnewood Road, opened this September. MV+A planned the redevelopment and designed the store exterior and interiors.
