The Accolade on Chestnut
The renovation of The Accolade on Chestnut will reposition the original 1970 modernist building, refreshing it to an updated, contemporary live/learn environment, that is targeted toward University of Pennsylvania graduate students. The exterior plaza entrance area will be refurbished with updated materials, furnishings, plantings, and lighting, along with minor cosmetic repairs and revisions to the hardscaping. All roofs will be replaced, and the exterior concrete surfaces will be cleaned, resealed, and repaired. Windows and storefront will be replaced, to ensure energy efficiency and fresh air standards. The existing construction of all floors of the residential towers and amenity spaces will be removed down to core and shell, and all new dwelling units and amenity spaces will be rebuilt. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and sprinkler systems will be replaced with energy efficient systems.
