GBCA's 2020 Best Retail Project was awarded to Clemens Construction Company for City Winery.
City Winery was looking for a space to build their seventh new venue in Philadelphia. At the same time, Fashion District Philadelphia at the former Gallery Mall was looking for an anchor tenant to draw shoppers to the Fashion District. Both goals were met when City Winery opened its Philadelphia location in October 2019.
Located in the Fashion District, the new City Winery included the fit-out of a 31,000 square-foot winery including a restaurant as well as large and small performance venues. The 150-seat concert venue, 90-seat restaurant and 20-seat bar leads to the 350-seat venue on the lower level via a winding staircase lined with thousands of wine bottles. The large performance venue features hardwood floors, a custom-built bar, and windows with a view to the winery and barrel room. The lower level also includes the kitchen, offices, gang bathroom, locker rooms, green rooms with bathrooms and a reception area including a retail space and box office.
