- AgilePhilly Meeting Spots -

1041 Old Cassatt Road,

Berwyn, PA 19312

http://goo.gl/maps/w1Ol1

Best Directions . . . are still to use Southbound Rte 202

The best way to Vertex is the old standby Chesterbrook Blvd off of Rte 202.

Take Rte 202 Southbound.  After ValleyForge Road (Devon) and Rte 252 (Paoli),  Get off  at the Chesterbrook Blvd Exit.

Left at the top of the ramp.  Left at the light on West Swedesford Road Rte 252

When you see the Vertex sign . . . Slowly make the sharp Right onto Old Cassatt Road ( it looks like a Driveway )

Left into the Vertex Complex

Please note: No Handicap access. Meeting will be in building 1031 on the second floor, it is an older building with no elevator. An attendee with a physical disability should park on the north side of the building (side closest to Route 202) and then would be aided by fellow attendees up to the second floor.

As you leave Rte 252 and go along Old Cassatt Road then enter the parking lot . . . Building 1031 is the building on the Right.

Building 1031 is the building in the middle, away from Old Cassett Road, and away from Rte 252, but not the farthest away.  One can identify the 1031 building by its outline - the 2nd floor does not extend as far out as the 1st floor ( but that does not help you if it is dark)

Vertex will have volunteers to let attendees into the building and escort them up to the meeting room.

SECOND Best Directions. . . using the new Slip Lanes on Rte 29 from the PA Turnpike (avoids Rte 202 entirely)

Using PA Turnpike Rte 29 (the next exit after King of Prussia) the OFF-RAMP/ON-RAMP for EZpass customers (there are no toll booths), you will . . .

get off the PA Turnpike at Exit 320 and head south on Rte 29 (Morehall Road).

Since Yellow Springs road is being repaved, and Rte 202 northbound has cattle shoots - you are taking the local road "Swedesford Road" to go north to avoid Rte 202 entirely.  Be wary of sudden stops for turning traffic.

Turn Left when Swedesford Road ends at the Tee on Rte 252.

Slowly make the sharp Right onto Old Cassatt Road ( it looks like a Driveway )

Left into the Vertex Complex

Frontline Education

1400 Atwater Drive

in the corporate park of no-name, It is just north of the Super Wawa

Malvern, PA 19355

Directions from Rte 202 to Rte 29 North - As you go north on RTE 29, you pass the first corporate park (Great Valley Corp Park) that is noted for it’s BIG SQUARE BLOCK standing upright.

Go past the turnpike entrance and turn right at the next light onto Atwater Drive.

-or- when coming from the turnpike, take a right onto Rt 29 North, and take a right at the next Rd. (Atwater Dr).REMINDER: THIS Turnpike entrance is EZPASS ONLY !

Rte 202 South – there will be traffic
Get off at Rte 29 Northbound

to get past the traffic slowdown on Rte 202 at 5 pm

Rte 202 South
Go past Rte 252 Exit on right
Take the next exit for Chesterbrook Blvd from the right lane

At the top of the hill of the exit, make the RIGHT onto Chesterbrook Blvd
At the next light, make the LEFT onto Duportail Road.

After 1 mile, you will be at a TEE to make a right onto Swedesford Road
( If you go straight, you will get back onto Rte 202)

Proceed Carefully along Swedesford Road, watching for turning traffic
After going past Penn State campus on the left, you will come to a 4 lane highway that is Rte 29
Make the RIGHT onto Rte 29 NORTH

Continue and the FIRST ROAD on RIGHT   PAST the PA TURNPIKE ENTRANCE    is ATWATER DRIVE

The historic Wanamaker Building takes up the entire block bounded by Market St., S. Juniper St., Chestnut St. and S. 13th St. (google map). The main level is taken up by Macy's. It's located across the street from City Hall.

Parking is available in numerous pay-garages both in the Wanamaker building and in the immediate vicinity of City Hall. The least expensive ($8 and $9) are on Sansom Street between 11th and 12th Streets. On-street parking is available for 2 hours on Chestnut Street (south of City Hall) and portions of Filbert Street and John F Kennedy Blvd (North of City Hall), though it can be difficult to find an open space.

If you don't want to risk the cost of garage parking or the possible traffic snarl around City Hall, park away from City Hall near a subway station and take the subway in ($1.30 each way via token; $2 each way using cash at the station entrance).

The nearest rail stations are (http://www.septa.org/maps.html):
Regional Rail: Market East and Suburban Stations
