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.
The North Delaware District Plan has two focus areas: the Industrial Waterfront, and Liddonfield & Upper Holmesburg. Below are draft plans for each of the focus areas. Click on the images to enlarge.
