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 River Wards District Plan has three focus areas: Aramingo Shopping District, Port Richmond Village, and Lehigh Avenue Corridor. Below are draft plans for each of the focus areas. Click on the images to enlarge.
