Program: New construction of a visitor center featuring industrial materials and finishes
Harley-Davidson York Tour Center
Honored by USA Today as one of America’s “Top Ten Factory Tours”, this muscular new facility perfectly captures the industrial heritage that is at the core of the Harley-Davidson identity. Built to honor Harley-Davidson’s rich history, the Tour Center is a thoroughly modern facility designed to bring the company into its second century of operation.
The tour center interior includes an entry lobby, exhibit space, high definition theater, and retail store. As with all Harley-Davidson projects, only authentic and durable materials that reflect the company heritage were used. Exposed structural steel beams and ducts, galvanized corrugated metal deck, warehouse-style lighting, recycled rubber flooring, along with the use of polished chrome, steel, and leather accents reinforce the industrial qualities of the space and create a look that is honest, rugged, and distinctly Harley-Davidson.
