Field Operations – Race Street Pier
DELAWARE RIVER WATERFRONT CORPORATION OPENS PHILADELPHIA’S NEWEST PARK,
THE RACE STREET PIER
The Delaware River Waterfront Coporation (DRWC ) along with Mayor Nutter officially opened the new Race Street Pier, the first new public space of its kind on the Central Delaware River Waterfront to be realized as part of DRWC’s ambitious new Master Plan for the Central Delaware River Waterfront. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the Pier will create a strong physical experience that reconnects the City to the River, activates the water’s edge and establishes the pier as a distinctive new public park for the people of Philadelphia. Formerly Municipal Pier 11, the pier was renamed as the Race Street Pier to further reinforce its relationship to the City and reinstate its historic name.
