The Philadelphia Business Journal’s list of “best real-estate deals” are defined as those bringing large-scale benefit to the region as symbols of community investment, growth, jobs, and consumer confidence. Among its honorees for 2021 is the Oscar Lasko Program Activity Resource Campus (PARC), the new home of the Chester County Council, Boy Scouts of America. Ryan Sharrow of the Philadelphia Business Journal, issued the story.

An outside judging panel determined the 30 winners. Lauded properties were divided into the following categories:

  • Affordable housing (new for 2021)
  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (new for 2021)
  • Higher Education and Healthcare
  • Industrial
  • Multifamily
  • Office
  • Retail
  • Hospitality

PARC received its award in the Environmental, Social and Governance category.

The property, which includes an 18,000-square-foot building, is named for local businessman and philanthropist Oscar Lasko, a frequent collaborator with the Chester County Council.

It is a combination education center and event space used routinely by local scouts and other organizations seeking a site.

American Community Journals, publisher of VISTA.Today, was the space’s first reservation, celebrating its first-ever VISTA Leadership Megastars recognition program there in 2021.
