Designed by Editorial, Central Delaware River Waterfront Masterplan is located in Philadelphia, United States. While many cities are well along in the process of transforming their post-industrial waterfronts, Philadelphia is just beginning the next chapter in revitalising its storied waterfront along the Delaware River. This June, the City’s newly appointed Delaware River Waterfront Corporation unveiled a Master Plan for the Central Delaware River Waterfront that will serve as the blueprint for transforming the waterfront over the next 25 years. Developed by Cooper Robertson, OLIN, and Kieran Timberlake, the plan re-envisions the waterfront as more vibrant, green, and better connected to the city.
The heart of the plan is a six-mile stretch of waterfront from Spring Garden Street to the North to Washington Street to the South. Within that area are three major nodes or activity centres that will welcome new parks and public spaces and a rich mix of land uses including new residential, retail and entertainment projects.
