University Crossings Garners Award for Outstanding Planning, Land Development

University Crossings, which has attracted the first hotel, full-service commercial bank, and 24-hour convenience store to Chester in years, was recognized by the Delaware County Planning Commission as an “outstanding example of planning, design and land development.”

The first phase of the $50 million Chester revitalization project, a joint venture between Widener University and Crozer-Chester Medical Center, is the winner of the 2010 William H. Bates Memorial Award from the Planning Commission, which was presented by Chester Mayor Wendell N. Butler Jr. in a ceremony Feb. 18 at the County Government Center in Media. Teres Holdings LLC, the developer for University Crossings, accepted the award. 

According to Widener University President James T. Harris III, the award is truly an honor.

“The award recognizes what we are all working together to accomplish here in Chester,” Harris says. “We are working together—the city, Widener, Crozer-Chester, and private industry to attract businesses and services that benefit all the residents of Chester.”

The architectural firm of Piatt and Associates will also receive a William H. Bates Memorial Award for “outstanding design” for its role in the project.
