Ensemble/Mosaic, a joint venture between Ensemble Real Estate Investments and Mosaic Development Partners, has built a strong partnership with PIDC, working together to envision and create the Navy Yard’s future. The partnership is the exclusive developer of a 109-acre mixed-use development at the Navy Yard, which includes office, life science, retail, hospitality and the first residential project to be built on the campus. Together we have also led the process that created the 2022 Navy Yard Plan.
The bedrock of our relationship can be found in our shared values and goals. This includes a comprehensive approach to equity, providing minority- and women-owned businesses with a greater number of opportunities in development, making a portion of new residential units affordable housing, and working toward solutions for more equitable access to the Navy Yard.
In support of this, and to ensure the Navy Yard has a well-trained workforce to meet the current and future needs of Navy Yard employers, the joint venture created the Ensemble/Mosaic TNY Empowerment Foundation. This fund, created to support MBE and WBE small businesses in the Navy Yard, as well as individual minority and female members of the Navy Yard workforce, recently contributed $100,000 to the Navy Yard Skills Initiative. This contribution allowed the program to continue to implement high-quality programming that connects unemployed and underemployed Philadelphians from underserved communities with well-paying, quality careers with Navy Yard companies.
five principlesone plan
Each facet of the 2022 Navy Yard Plan is guided by framework principles that were intentionally crafted to create a new standard of equitable development. The vision put forth in the 2022 Plan reflects the Navy Yard’s future as a place that is:
- Inclusive and welcoming to diverse users, from a new small business tenant in retail and makerspace targeting local entrepreneurs, to a visitor looking to enjoy the Navy Yard’s accessible outdoor spaces and public art.
- Connected and multimodal, conveniently and comfortably accessed via public transit and dedicated bike lanes, with a smart and integrated system of internal circulation to maximize efficiency and foster safety and sustainability.
- A hub for equitable business growth and job creation across a wide range of innovative industries, including cell and gene therapies, next-generation shipbuilding, and advanced manufacturing.
- Vibrant and active, spurred by a new residential community with apartments available at a range of rental rates that will bring a greater mix of uses, services, and amenities to the Navy Yard.
- Innovative and resilient, thanks to smart infrastructure and open spaces that integrate well-designed spaces with technical function, using forward-thinking strategies to enhance the quality of life for Philadelphians.
