Historic Hartshorne Mansion Breaks Ground on Addition

WEST CHESTER, PA — Barclay Park, LLC and Pancoast & Clifford are pleased to announce the construction of a new addition to the historic Hartshorne Mansion. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on Thursday, April 8th, 2021.

Located adjacent to Barclay Park, Hartshorne Mansion is a colonial revival Italianate building built in 1867 as a private residence. It now serves a professional office complex with 37 office suites, a conservatory lounge, and a wraparound deck overlooking the historic grounds.

Designed by VLBJR Architects, the planned 17,409 square feet addition will feature a brick and glass façade, combining historical aspects of the original building with contemporary design elements. Pillar Real Estate Advisors will be managing the leasing for the property.

“My intent for this project is to provide quality Class A modern office space, keeping with the historical nature of the Hartshorne building and grounds that exist today. For anyone who is seeking a wonderful work environment, this site will provide the opportunity to call one of the most beautiful sites in West Chester, your office. The building is designed with the traditional West Chester view of historical architecture, but keeping within the modern requirements and expectations of office space. We trust that the Pancoast & Clifford reputation will bring this vision into a reality.” said Charlie Walsh, Managing Director of Barclay Park LLC.

“The confidence that the Barclay Park, LLC management has placed in us highlights the value of the construction knowledge we bring to our clients during their selection process and throughout the duration of the project. We are excited to break ground,” said Frank Pancoast, President of P&C.
