The Central Delaware Riverfront Master Plan has received a 2012 Honor Award in the category of Regional and Urban Design from the American Institute of Architects. OLIN worked in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team including Cooper Robertson & Partners, KieranTimberlake, HR&A Advisors and over thirty stakeholder groups to create the master plan for the riverfront in downtown Philadelphia.
The master plan addresses six miles—924 acres—of urban waterfront and features access to public parks at half-mile intervals, using landscape as the connective tissue between new and old fragments of the city.
“Our multi-disciplinary team developed a 25-year implementation strategy that is visionary—yet practical—for Philadelphia’s waterfront,” stated OLIN CEO and Partner Lucinda Sanders, who led OLIN’s participation in the project.
Central Delaware Riverfront Master Plan will appear in the upcoming #04 edition of WLA Quarterly Magazine
