Ambler Boiler House

The towering smoke stack of the Boiler House has become an icon to the residents of Ambler Borough and to passengers traveling on the adjacent R-5 rail line. When completed, the Boiler House will contain 36,000 SF of exclusive office space, strategically located adjacent to the R-5 line. An extension of the passenger platform at Ambler Station will provide easy access to Center City Philadelphia and the surrounding area. Langan's site design focused on highlighting the industrial heritage of the site, while addressing some of the more serious contamination issues. The plan incorporated landscape elements and plant material consistent with an industrial site which still provided a level of finish appropriate for corporate offices.
