Central Focus Areas

The Central District Plan has four focus areas: Unifying & Energizing the Civic Center, Transforming West Callowhill’s Connections, Revitalizing Ridge Avenue & north Broad Street, and Creating the Franklin Square Neighborhood. Below are draft plans for each of the focus areas. Click on the image to enlarge.

Focus Areas are catalysts for their larger context. They are strategically located sites with the potential to benefit the entire district, or even the city as a whole. Reimagining these areas as more dynamic economically, aesthetically, or functionally can have a transformational effect. These long-term visions provide inspiration and a framework as smaller improvements occur incrementally.

Focus Area Goals:
> Create a cohesive network of public spaces
> Build-off of  recent successes and investments – Lenfest Plaza, Dilworth Plaza, Sister Cities Plaza
>Provide spaces and programs that appeal to every user group
