30th St Station Master Plan
SRDC is a member of the Coordinating Committee that worked to develop a plan to provide efficient access for the transportation users, connect the Station to the neighborhoods and to make the Station a destination for non-transportation users. Development of a concept by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) was completed in mid-2016. The project is being led by a development team comprised of Amtrak, Drexel University, SEPTA and Brandywine Realty Trust.
SRDC assisted in the concept phase by sharing the ideas developed in its West Bank Greenway study. The area around the Station presents a real challenge in developing a safe and convenient path to take bicyclists and pedestrians through this highly congested area. Early preliminary concepts for the Master Plan also included one or two pedestrian bridges crossing the river that would link the newly developed area to the Banks. This would not only bring new users to the trail but also provide a dramatic visual addition to the Banks.
