This Event Has Passed


Thursday, October 4, 2018

8:00 AM - 9:30 AM


1218 Arch Street


This event is part of DesignPhiladelphia. James Templeton and George Claflen will discuss DAG’s new collaborative planning process for both banks of the central Schuylkill River. Working with volunteers, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and a specialized consultant, DAG’s goal is to create a set of guidelines and/or zoning overlay document that could be adopted by the City. ​DAG’s process includes initial data collection and analysis of existing master plans, proposals and potentially developable riverfront sites. Later, working with the City and stakeholders, a charrette process is envisioned. James and George will also present earlier work referencing development along the Chicago River.
