Pier 53 Design and Construction Plan RFP
The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation and the City of Philadelphia are seeking proposals from qualified design/build consultants to prepare a design and construction plan for improvements to Pier 53 and its surrounding area. This project will occur on an aggressive schedule with implementation to begin in late winter/early spring of 2010. The goal is to develop Pier 53 and its surrounds into a simple and attractive green, public space with active programming to bring people to the riverfront. This project is intended to enhance the interim trail that will extend from Mifflin Street north to Lombard Street. In addition, the project design is intended to facilitate immediate and future investments in ecological improvements, both aquatic and riparian, to Pier 53 and its surrounding area.
