We’ve been following the plans for the East Passyunk Avenue gateway project since it was first announced back in January of 2014.
After a few month of work since the April groundbreaking ceremony, the completed gateway is ready to be unveiled at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 10.
The completed gateway includes more seating, greenery and lighting. Originally, plans for the gateway included an Indego bike share station dock and fountains, but due to space constraints and the cost of maintaining the fountain, they were removed from the plans.
This project is from the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation, along with a $495,000 grant from the William Penn Foundation. P.A.R.C. also completed another project this summer with the improved space at the Mifflin Triangle.
If you want to check out the ribbon cutting ceremony, it will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 10 at the gateway at Broad Street and East Passyunk Avenue. The ribbon cutting ceremony will be followed by a reception across the street at Palladino’s.
