Philadelphia Zoo Shop Renovation

     

Philadelphia Zoo Shop

 

 

 

 

 

The building is fully sprinklered. It is heated and cooled by forced air units that extract cooling and heating from a geothermal system that consist of six (6) wells that were drilled over five hundred feet deep. The Zoo Shop was also fitted out with a new point of sales system and is part of the Zoo's main telecommunication and water service loop. The two new entrances to the Zoo Shop allow the visitor to access the Zoo Shop when entering or leaving the Zoo. The free flowing access, additional retail space, new display fixtures, lighting and checkout counters allow easy shopping for the visitor and can top off an experience at the Zoo.

The Philadelphia Zoological Gardens is located at 3400 West Girard Avenue. The Zoo Shop is located at the Zoo's main entrance, "The North Gate", and is open to the public free of charge during regular operating hours. Renovations at the Zoo Shop consisted of the following: gutting the interior space and extension of the west exterior wall to provide additional retail and office space; excavation to lower the shop to provide a storage area and mechanical space; a new one story addition creating a new main entrance; new roof; and signage with state-of-the-art graphics.
