merisourceBergen, a global healthcare solutions leader, will host a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the commencement of construction on its new state-of-the-art headquarters located at SORA West – Keystone Property Group’s forthcoming dynamic, mixed-use, transit-oriented development in downtown Conshohocken.
The Tower at AmerisourceBergen will be a modern, 11-story facility, designed to foster collaboration, and open in 2021. The new building will house approximately 1,400 associates from AmerisourceBergen’s current Philadelphia-area campuses. To attract and retain premier talent in the Greater Philadelphia region, the new headquarters will include employee-focused amenities such as: a fitness center; onsite dining services; access to the restored Conshohocken Firehouse that will be reinvented as a gastropub with indoor and outdoor dining; walking distance to downtown Conshohocken and the Schuylkill River Trail.
It represents the first step in the wider redevelopment of SORA West, which will include a vibrant public plaza adjacent to the building; a 130-key hotel with significant restaurant space and rooftop lounge; and a 1,200+-space parking structure to support these facilities.
As a part of AmerisourceBergen’s efforts to promote sustainability and employee well-being, the company will pursue a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and will be smoke and tobacco-free.
The groundbreaking coincides with AmerisourceBergen CEO Steve Collis’s 25thanniversary with the company. During the event, Gina Clark, President of the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, the nonprofit charitable giving arm of AmerisourceBergen, will announce the launch of a hyper-local grant program, a dedicated micro-fund in which small grants will be donated to community-based organizations within a five to ten-mile radius of the new headquarters. Previous local community partners include Simon’s Heart and Cradles to Crayons.
