Grand Opening of Rodin Square

The Harman Group (THG) is proud to announce Rodin Square, a 520,000 square foot mixed use development, celebrated its grand opening on Friday, October 14.

THG is the structural engineer and parking consultant on the project, which was developed jointly by Philadelphia’s IFC International and Washington based Dalian Development.  The $160M mixed-use project combines a high end residential component called Dalian on the Park, 85,000 square feet of office space and retail anchored by Whole Foods, and below-and-above grade parking.

“The Rodin Square project has transformed nearly a full square block of underutilized space into an extension of Center City’s core,” said Jan Vacca, Principal with The Harman Group, “We were able to draw on our experience engineering complex, but cost efficient, downtown mixed use projects to create a new landmark along the Parkway that seamlessly integrates housing, amenities, retail and parking elements.”

The ten-story residential portion, Dalian on the Park, features 293 luxury residential apartments in addition to a 35,000 square foot rooftop Sky Park featuring an infinity pool. The ground floor features a 55,000 square foot Whole Food Market and a CVS. To ensure that the market wasn’t impacted by the residential uses, green roof, and pool above it, THG designed an internal mezzanine, which allows for the collection of any leaking water. THG utilized a steel frame for the building with precast plank floors, and cold form steel bearing walls for the residential above.

Residents and shoppers can also enjoy five tiers of below-and above-grade structured parking that accommodates up to 490 cars.

Rodin Square broke ground in summer of 2014 and celebrated its Topping Off in November of 2015.
