A New Penn's Landing on the Delaware River Waterfront
DRWC is connecting the City to the river's edge with the creation of a new Penn’s Landing, the heart of our waterfront. The concept for Penn’s Landing includes more than just the 12 acre civic park created by bridging over I-95; the plan also establishes a vision for smaller neighborhood-scale public spaces within development sites. The comprehensive activation of this space will include:
- Four-acre highway cap over I-95 and Columbus Boulevard
- A new park for the Great Plaza
- 11 acres of public space
- 50-foot wide pedestrian esplanade along the river
- Opportunities for 1,500 new residences, 500 new hotel rooms, and 75,000 feet of retail space
- And more!
