Introducing Moore Park KOP

Introducing a visionary neighborhood at the center of $1B in economic development, that is redefining the work-life experience in the Philadelphia region. Formerly known as the King of Prussia business park, Moore Park KOP is a progressive, thriving community where commercial, residential, retail, dining and industrial spaces work together to grow business, enhance lifestyle and seize opportunity.

Located in the heart of King of Prussia at the confluence of Routes 276, 76, 23 and 422, Moore Park KOP is currently home to 20,000 employees, 63,000+ SF of corporate meeting and event space, five hotels, the Valley Forge Casino Resort, 3.6M+ SF of commercial and industrial space, and a number of notable companies including GeoBlue, Radial, Arkema, CSL Behring, First Quality Enterprises and more. Moore Park KOP is an economic powerhouse in the suburban Philadelphia region.

Here are some of our upcoming projects:

TRANSPORTATION

First Avenue Road Diet

Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians will soon enjoy a safer experience in Moore Park KOP. This spring, Upper Merion Township and King of Prussia District are implementing the First Avenue Road Diet. This new infrastructure improvement, used around the country to create a more pedestrian-friendly roadway, will reduce travel lanes to one in each direction and add a center turning lane, bicycle lanes on both sides of the street and a signalized, accessible crosswalk midway between American Ave. and Moore Rd. The U.S. Department of Transportation found that road diets can reduce traffic accidents by an average of 29% by reducing conflict points when crossing multiple lanes, reducing vehicle speeds and providing designated lanes for cyclists. Construction activity will be suspended during the AM and PM rush hours (6:00-9:00 AM and 3:00-8:00 PM) and is expected to cause minor disruption to commuters on First Avenue. A portion of the funding is provided by grants received from PennDOT.

King of Prussia Rail

King of Prussia Rail is a proposal to extend the existing Norristown High Speed Line into the heart of King of Prussia’s employment core. King of Prussia Rail will provide a one-seat ride to King of Prussia from either 69th Street Transportation Center in Upper Darby, or from the Norristown Transportation Center. This transformative project will connect the three largest employment centers in the Philadelphia region – Center City, University City and King of Prussia – and will serve as a catalyst for economic development for the entire region. Among its many benefits, King of Prussia Rail will connect employers to a broader pool of employees, reduce commute times and emissions, and spur job growth. In January 2018, SEPTA’s Board voted to approve the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) as presented in the King of Prussia Rail Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) with the North/South design option. The LPA includes two station stops in Moore Park KOP.

PHYSICAL IMPROVEMENTS

Linear Park

The Linear Park is a unique collaboration between KOP-BID, UMT and 21 property owners along First Avenue. In May 2017, KOP-BID opened the Demonstration Project, a 450-section of the park designed to give the public a preview of the multi-use path, with Phase 1 expected to be complete in 2019. PennDOT is providing a portion of the project funding through two grants.
