The Porch at 30th Street Station

 

In November 2011, UCD with significant support from the William Penn Foundation opened The Porch at 30th Street Station, a transformative new urban open space. Adjacent to the second busiest train station in the country, between two magnificent historic buildings and within a short walk of over 16,000 jobs, The Porch is a key gateway to the region. Once a congested parking lane and bland, barren sidewalk, The Porch has quickly become one of the most animated public places in Philadelphia, with amenities such as design by Groundswell, Michael Schulson's Rotisserie truck & beer garden, abundant seating, vibrant seasonal plantings, ongoing performances, and a variety of special events.
