Delaware River Waterfront Corporation: Who We Are and What We Do

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation organized exclusively for the benefit of the City of Philadelphia and its citizens. DRWC acts as the steward of the Delaware River waterfront to provide a benefit to all of the citizens and visitors of the City. 

The fundamental purpose of DRWC is to design, develop and manage the central Delaware River waterfront in Philadelphia between Oregon and Allegheny Avenues. DRWC intends to transform the central Delaware River waterfront into a vibrant destination for recreational, cultural, and commercial activities for the residents and visitors of Philadelphia. DRWC will serve as a catalyst for high-quality investment in public parks, trails, maritime, residential, retail, hotel, and other improvements that create a vibrant amenity, extending Philadelphia to the river’s edge. 

DRWC is open, transparent, and accountable in connection with its operations and activities with respect to the waterfront. Through the judicious use of financing, land acquisition, and development capabilities, the Corporation will work cooperatively with city, state, and federal agencies to ensure the realization of the City’s vision for the central Delaware River.
