  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) January 05, 2022 - Center City Proprietors Association (CCPA) invited Vincent Myers, AIA, LEED AP, President, DIGroup Architecture, to be a panelist at their “Meet The Developer” series.

    With new developments, redevelopments and construction projects underway, Philadelphia is experiencing an exciting period of growth. As the perceptions of Center City’s boundaries change, some of the city’s innovative developers, builders, architects and engineers – the visionaries who are driving changes to Philadelphia’s skyline and expanding neighborhoods – spoke at this event.

    According to Myers, “The urban landscape is changing in Philadelphia and other urban centers everywhere as a result of the pandemic. Many companies and institutions are rethinking their spatial needs by choice or were permanently shuttered, leaving voids throughout the city.

    For real estate developers, this creates attractive opportunities for adaptive reuse consideration. Conversions of former hotels, offices, university buildings and factories into residential units, affordable housing and mixed-use development are trending strong.

    As architects we endorse adaptive reuse as it is a sustainable way to preserve the architectural elements and rich history of older buildings for future generations to appreciate, as well reinvest and enrich our communities.

    We are taught to understand urbanism and can recognize areas with development potential which the untrained eye cannot see. An architect can help develop a project in many ways; inspect and evaluate properties, visualize spatial and sustainable solutions, and preserve historic materials and features. However, one who understands a project from a business perspective, who has financial experience, and an understanding of how economic factors influences future development, can contribute greatly to a project’s commercial success.”

    DIGroup Architecture is one of the area’s largest majority, black-owned firms, certified as a Minority-owned, Disadvantaged-owned, and Small Business Enterprise (MBE/DBE/SBE) specializing in architecture, planning, interior design and environmental graphics, signage and wayfinding services for Senior Living, Education, Healthcare and Civic clients. The company takes great pride in its ethnically and culturally diverse staff who are passionate about architecture.

    DIG originated as a consortium of several small architectural firms who formed an alliance to collaborate and compete for large projects issued by the NJ Schools Development Authority that revitalized the state’s most under-served public school districts. This collaboration became so successful at delivering many of the state’s most significant, community-centered design projects that the firms formally merged in 2006. The profound impact these projects had on the most basic human need of health and wellness, brought a whole new meaning and purpose to the firm. From that point forward, “Architecture for Change” became our story, design philosophy and commitment to clients to re-imagine structures and environments to unite people, enhance well-being and enrich communities.

    DIG’s successes have not gone unnoticed; in 2021, the company was selected as one of the 2021 Leaders in Real Estate, Construction, and Design in the Architecture category by NJBIZ, and was ranked among the top Minority Businesses and Architectural firms by both NJBIZ and Philadelphia Business Journal.
