Master Plan continues to move forward

The Philadelphia Art Commission gave final approval to the public art concept for our Columbia Ave connector project -- our joint effort with the NKCDC and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)! 

Nationally renowned artist, Donald Lipski, will fabricate animal sculptures to honor the Three Clans of indigenous Lenape. 

Combined with new streetscaping and underpass improvements designed by Studio Bryan Hanes, the connector will tie the neighborhood to the water, and evoke the spirit and history—both ancient and recent—of Fishtown.
