Property awarded Best Curb Appeal – Suburbs in the 2022 Best of the Best Awards Competition
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – October 6, 2022 – Accesso, a fully integrated investment manager and operator of multi-tenant office and multifamily assets, is excited to announce that Westlakes, one of the most prestigious office parks in the Philadelphia suburbs, was named the winner of the Best Curb Appeal – Suburbs category in the Building Owners and Managers Association Philadelphia’s (“BOMA Philadelphia”) 2022 Best of the Best Awards Competition. Westlakes beat out multiple other deserving properties in the category, and was selected for its “wow-factor” which is noticeable immediately upon entering the grounds of the 455,183-square-foot, class A office campus.
Situated on 40.4 acres near the intersection of Routes 202 and 252 in the highly desirable King of Prussia submarket, Westlakes resembles an oasis of sorts in the middle of one of America’s most active MSAs. Each time guests arrive to the property, they are greeted by meticulously landscaped gardens maintained by Warrington-based Detailed Environments, Inc., and rolling green lawns that wind their way among woodlands, historical ruins, natural spring-fed lakes and a sparkling trout stream.
“We are truly thrilled and honored that Westlakes was named by BOMA Philadelphia as having the best curbside appeal in suburban Philadelphia,” stated Deb Kolar, Director, Asset Management for Accesso. “While the property is known for having the world-class amenities and natural light-filled office spaces tenants covet, we take great pride in ensuring its grounds are well-maintained all year long to create an inviting environment for our tenants and community to enjoy. I’d like to thank BOMA Philadelphia for recognizing the attention to detail we put into the exterior of this property and for raising awareness of the great things building owners like Accesso are doing to create value for their tenants and help their assets stand out.”
Westlakes features numerous lifestyle amenities throughout the grounds of the property that were highlighted by BOMA Philadelphia in the selection process. They include an outdoor patio overlooking a lake furnished with tables, umbrellas, soft seating and a fire pit, enhanced by complimentary Wi-Fi; multiple walking paths that are part of the 13-mile Chester Valley Trail; and a bike-share program with security code access.
“I’d like to congratulate Accesso and Westlakes for ranking among the best of the best and for being named the winner of the Best Curb Appeal – Suburbs category,” said Kristine Kiphorn, Executive Director of BOMA Philadelphia. “Westlakes serves as a model for the type of property tenants are seeking today given all that it has to offer throughout both its interior and exterior.”
BOMA Philadelphia’s Best of the Best award winners were unveiled at the 2022 The Outstanding Building of The Year (“TOBY”) Awards Dinner, which took place at The Crystal Tea Room at The Wanamaker Office Building in Philadelphia on September 21, 2022.
