Our friends at Center City District have released some fascinating information about the redesign plans for Dilworth Plaza. The new Plaza promises to be more environmentally friendly (26% greater tree canopy, which decreases both ambient temperature and stormwater in the sewer system), will integrate with SEPTA’s station work, and is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs over the projected 30-month lifespan of the project. (Project completion is scheduled for fall 2013.)
It’s not all about green space, however, as the plans include a winter ice skating rink and an outdoor concert venue. Not bad, huh?
What do you think of the plan? Will the changes impact your commute, the time you spend downtown on The Avenue, or some other aspect of your day?
And to all of our Jewish friends, we wish you a happy start to Hanukkah.
