The Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan represents one of the best opportunities in the region for re-envisioning rail and transit services and supporting transportation oriented development for urban transformation.
Philadelphia is undergoing a new era of growth and opportunity, largely fueled by the continued growth of Center City and University City. There are also efforts to expand transportation capacity and service in the City and the region. Because of these forces, the area around 30th Street Station has the opportunity to leverage this activity to become a more vibrant, connected, inviting Philadelphia neighborhood.
The Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan, led by Amtrak, Brandywine Realty Trust, Drexel University and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and guided by a host of public and private stakeholders will create a single, integrated vision for the Philadelphia 30th Street Station District. A vision full of opportunities for community development, economic growth and improved transportation connections.
The planning effort is expected to take approximately two years.
