Project Spotlight: Seasonal? Vegan? Vegetarian? – Seasons at Drexel and Vegetate

Niki Ververelli - Thursday, May 08, 2014

Over the last 2 years, Drexel has seen new retail dining locations open on its University City campus with a common theme – sustainable, palatable eating – enter Seasons at Drexel and Vegetate at Chestnut Square.

Seasons at Drexel opened in 2012 as part of the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building – a revolutionary academic space on campus featuring the largest living bio wall in North America – very cool. Much like the name suggests, Seasons at Drexel features a seasonal cycling of menu items including fresh salads, sandwiches and gelato – yum!

Vegetate at Chestnut Square opened in the fall of 2013. A retail dining location located at Chestnut Square – a new mixed-use development on the Drexel University campus – Vegetate was designed to cater to vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and everyone in-between!

For both of these locations, DJVI provided a full MEP (that’s Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing to those in the know) fit-out for the spaces. We worked in partnership with Charles Matsinger & Associates (hello architect friends!) on both projects, bringing new, fast-casual options to the University City community.

Vegetate and Seasons at Drexel were featured in February 2014 issue of Grid Philly magazine: http://www.gridphilly.com/grid-magazine/2014/1/23/two-new-drexel-eateries-are-sustainable-on-and-off-the-menu.html
