After more than 30 years in Center City Philadelphia, Equus Capital Partners relocated their corporate headquarters to Ellis Preserve in Newtown Square, PA. in the Spring of 2019. Designed in the spirit of a “gentleman’s barn”, the new 42,000 SF building evokes the Equus branding of a thoroughbred horse. Artifacts from Ellis Preserve’s history along with past and current Equus development projects have been artfully displayed throughout the building in a descriptive motif. Each artifact is accompanied by a story panel to explain its significance.
Constructed largely of reclaimed wood and other materials from Equus’ Berkshire Knitting Mills project in Wyomissing PA, the Equus Headquarters is a model example of how Sustainability blends with new construction. Equipped with full LED lighting and high efficiency HVAC systems, the building minimizes carbon emissions.
In moving to Ellis Preserve, Equus sought for its staff of real estate professionals to experience first-hand the unique Ellis Preserve Live/ Work/ Play environment and its abundant package of amenities. Ellis Preserve is Equus’ “Real Estate Laboratory” where every discipline in real estate—Historic Preservation, new development of office, retail, hotel and residential projects, repositioning of functionally obsolete office, lab and industrial buildings and preservation of open space is practiced.
