Central Delaware Riverfront Master Plan is awarded a gold medal
The Master Plan for the Central Delaware Riverfront was recognized with a Commonwealth Award Gold Medal in Plans and Planning by the 10,000 Friends of Pennsylvania. The Central Delaware Master Plan is a redevelopment plan for a seven-mile stretch of the Delaware River in Philadelphia. HR&A worked in partnership with Cooper Robertson & Partners and the Olin Studio on behalf of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation to ensure that the plan supports the City of Philadelphia’s long term economic development goals, and will provide recommendations on the initial steps toward reconnecting Philadelphia’s neighborhoods with the River.
The Commonwealth Gold medal lauded the Plan as “a brilliant blueprint for revitalizing the waterfront and intelligently integrating it with the character of the city’s many neighborhoods along the Delaware River.”
