In collaboration with NV5, ESI supported the development of Riverfront North Partnership’s 2020 Master Plan. Riverfront North is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect residents in Northeast Philadelphia to its nearby Delaware River waterfront, through the completion and programing of riverfront trails and parks. The Master Plan aimed to improve connectivity and functionality of the riverfront as well as nurture existing ecosystems and grow existing opportunities for placemaking along the water.
ESI assisted with an evaluation of the ways that Riverfront North could leverage its plans for the riverfront into economic development for the surrounding neighborhood, providing case studies and research to support the economic case for waterfront amenities and trail networks.
