LOWER SCHUYLKILL INNOVATION DISTRICT
Aligned with the City of Philadelphia's
Lower Schuylkill Master Plan, PIDC has been at work for more than a decade transforming a deteriorating 3,700-acre industrial corridor into modern business campuses for innovation that has already resulted in:

GRAYS AVENUE & LINDBERGH BOULEVARD CORRIDOR
We have been working together with the community to address long-standing pain points in the neighborhood, which include the state of Grays Avenue and Lindbergh Boulevard.
PIDC is assisting with funding the full design of the Complete Streets Project, as well as the construction of streetscape, sidewalk improvements, and gateway treatments.
