About the Project:

Once a collection of wetlands and meadows, the 5.5-acre “Central Green” site at the heart of the Philadelphia Navy Yard is becoming one of Philadelphia’s most innovative and progressive neighborhoods. The design of Central Green unites the cutting edge urban potential of the site with its native habitat, resulting in a new type of environment that is sustainable, verdant, social, active, and urban.
