“The addition of these acclaimed retail tenants to Drexel University and the surrounding communities will expand the rich and diverse culinary options available in the University City area,” said Drexel University President John A. Fry. “We are proud to have tenants of this quality and character on our campus and believe that we have created a unique retail destination for the city at large.”

This mixed-use block will transform Chestnut Street between 32nd and 33rd Streets into a new gateway for Drexel University and University City, featuring approximately 361,200 square feet of retail and service space along with urban living. The addition of these locally and regionally owned restaurants will provide residents and visitors with culinary authenticity and award-winning excellence within a diverse price range.

coZara

Chef Hiroyuki “Zama” Tanaka, owner of Zama, a Rittenhouse Square sushi restaurant best known for palette pleasing dishes with an elegant aesthetic, will open the restaurant’s second location coZara (Japanese for small plates) in Chestnut Square. Zama has served Philadelphia at its 19th Street location and after only three years was recently proclaimed among the “50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia in 2013” by Philadelphia Magazine. Chef Tanaka describes coZara as a traditional Japanese Izakaya featuring ramen, Noodle, Donburi, yakitori and dumplings. For more information visit zamaphilly.com.

Renowned NYC restaurateur, Danny Meyer, and Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) are proud to announce the celebrated burger stand’s newest location in Chestnut Square, set to open late summer. Shake Shack is a modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its all-natural burgers, flat-top dogs, frozen custard and more. In addition to quality ingredients, an authentic commitment to sustainability, and giving back to the community, Shake Shack was recently distinguished in Bon Appétit’s “20 Most Important Restaurants in 2013.” For more information visit shakeshack.com.

Joe Coffee

Joe, a Manhattan-based, family-owned specialty coffee shop, will open a 10th location in Chestnut Square in late summer this year. Since opening in 2003, this cup of Joe has racked up rave reviews from New York Magazine to The Los Angeles Times. Joe touts their dedication to making flawless coffee served with warm hospitality and has been named one of the “Best U.S. Coffee Bars” by Food & Wine, listed as one of “10 Outstanding Coffee Bars in New York City” by The New York Times, and has had a number of articles, mentions and awards besides.

Eateries and retail at Chestnut Square not only mean quality and convenience in options for residents, but will also translate into more than 100 additional jobs for the community. Retail brokerage and consulting firm Michael Salove Company (MSC) and American Campus have teamed up to find the best mix of eateries and services to serve the Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania populations at Chestnut Square and are currently planning to add a dessert specialty shop and a variety of other services and retail.
