Dilworth Plaza Redo Begins Soon
The renovation of Dilworth Plaza, the main Gateway to City Hall, will soon get underway. The two-and-a half year construction project is stated to open some time in 2014. The currently inaccessible, multi-level, unattractive, hard-surface plaza into a sustainable, well-maintained, green public space with no stairs or barriers from the street. The new plaza will have a large lawn, tree groves, a programmable fountain and space for 400 benches and chairs. The underground will be dramatically improved as a new transit gateway, providing entrances to Broad Street and Market Street subways and the trolley lines. New elevators will make the transit levels accessible for the first time.
