Society Hill Planning STUDY

LOCUS PARTNERS  |  Philadelphia

Society Hill’s urban fabric dates back to the founding of the city and yet it is also a model for significant modern urban insertions that helped create and enhance its quaint open spaces. We proposed an approach to the neighborhood plan that would yield urban development design guidelines and public realm improvement strategies for the community to use when faced with development pressures on sensitive sites. Furthermore, we offered a highly interactive meeting approach to both inform and involve all participants at each stage of the process.
