What better place to learn about Penn’s Landing Cap and Civic Space than at the Delaware Waterfront! Join us for an inside look at Philadelphia’s most exciting public land use project, presented by Lizzie Wood of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation.
DRWC (Delaware River Waterfront Corporation) is reconnecting Philadelphia to its river’s edge with the creation of a transformational new Penn’s Landing Cap and Civic Space at the heart of the city’s waterfront. There are four key elements of this ambitious project, all of which were conceived as part of the DRWC’s Master Plan for the Central Delaware 2012. The four key elements that Lizzie Wood will discuss are:
– A four-acre cap over I-95 and Columbus Boulevard, between Walnut and Chestnut Streets
– An eight-acre civic space between Walnut and Chestnut Streets
– An architecturally distinctive extension of the South Street Bridge
– The Construction of the two mile on-road section of the Delaware River Trail.
