Doylestown Agricultural Works
Prominently located on a full block in the center of historic downtown Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and surrounded by an array of affluent North Philadelphia suburbs stands the Doylestown Agricultural Works, a complex of historically-registered buildings accentuated by quaint landscapes and age-old hardscapes that provide 37,064 leasable square feet of distinctive retail shops, professional offices, and restaurant space. Originally constructed in 1867 on 2.38 acres, the former factory for farm machinery and ironwork and past homesteads of the Doylestown Agricultural Works were historically restored in painstaking detail in a $2,000,000 renovation project in 1986. Transformative, historically accurate refurbishments were successfully blended with modern amenities to create commercial spaces possessing the character of historic Bucks county and the best in contemporary conveniences. This high-profile, highly coveted business center is comprised of eleven unique tenant spaces and 95 off-street parking spaces and provides easy access to the Doylestown Train Station which is directly across the street. The eight architecturally-celebrated buildings of Doylestown Agricultural Works are home to such national tenants as PNC Financial Services Group, PNC Mortgage, and Talbots as well as the popular European-style bistro Slate Bleu and nationally recognized hairstylist David Velasco of David Velasco Salon, Ltd. This historic commercial village is ideally positioned in Doylestown Borough, the flourishing county seat of Bucks County, known for its high concentration of business and law professionals, governmental offices, non-profit organizations, and financial services companies. With a high-performing school system, award-winning community hospital, 16-mile network of bike pathways, seven municipal parks of 80 acres, museums and galleries, a host of locally-owned shops and restaurants, and a year-round calendar of community-sponsored cultural and social events, Doylestown is the perfect North Philadelphia suburb for families to live and thrive. The towering brick gables, distinguished eaves, stone foundations and handcrafted doors and stoops of the Agricultural Works are gracious testaments to generations of local ingenuity, fortitude and pride. In recognition of its historical significance, the United State Department of Interior placed Doylestown Agricultural Works on the National Register of Historical Places in 2003.
