Dilworth Plaza Construction

As many of you are well aware, the former 1970's design of Dilworth Plaza is being reconstructed and transformed into a 21st Century Public Plaza.  Located above the hub of Philadelphia's public transit network and former home to many of the city's homeless and Philadelphia Occupy Wall Street tent city, the new plaza will feature a spacious green lawn and interactive public fountains, cafe and new subway concourse entrance pavilions.  The lawn will serve many public events like summer movies and in winter time the fountain will be transformed into an ice skating rink.

The Center City District's Paul Levy says construction at Dliworth Plaza is progressing as it should.  There are 50 to 70 construction workers on-site every day.  The Plaza is expected to be completed by summer of 2014.
