The 341,000 sq ft space was designed by Meyer Scherer & Rockcastle and has brought all of the employees, who were once spread across six different buildings throughout downtown Philadelphia, to a single location.

Urban Outfitters's founder, Dick Hayne, bought four hulking decommissioned and dilapidated buildings, near the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers, and sunk $100 million into transforming them into a corporate headquarters that would reflect the buildings' industrial roots.
