The Knitting Mills
Office / Retail |
In December 2016, affiliates of Equus Capital Partners, Ltd. acquired the Vanity Fair Outlet Center (53 acres) on the site of the former Berkshire Knitting Mills campus (100+ acres). The Knitting Mills (TKM) is a 53-acre mixed-use development situated near the intersection of Penn Ave. (Rt. 422) and Park Rd., in Wyomissing, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
The Knitting Mills represented a unique opportunity in terms of its iconic setting, historic architecture, and unparalleled access to amenities including parks, recreation, museums, housing, and medical services. Unlike other corporate campuses, TKM began as a planned community. Ferdinand Thun and Henry Janssen the visionaries who created the Berkshire Knitting Mills at the beginning of the 19th century, wanted to create a safe, clean, orderly community for employees, management, and ownership.
Over the last 4 years, TKM has reemerged as the premier corporate headquarters and innovation center in Berks County. It is now home to UGI’s Energy Services HQ, Tower Health’s Corporate Offices and Training Center, Teleflex/ Arrow’s R&D and Innovation Center and Drexel University College of Medicine at Tower Health. On site amenities include McDonalds, WaWa and Sly Fox Brew Pub. It is flanked by the county’s outstanding multifamily developments Wyomissing Sq. (230 units) including and The Narrows (90 units) and is within a 5 minute walk of West Reading’s Main Street District, offering a unique variety of small shops, restaurants, services and housing. In addition, TKM is within walking distance of Berks’ Counties wealthiest community Wyomissing Borough and the area’s largest and most dynamic employer, Reading Hospital / Tower Health Systems.
