FRANKFORD TRANSPORTATION CENTER
LOCATION: PHILADELPHIA, PA
CLIENT: Southeastern Transportation Authority (SEPTA)
Synterra Ltd. provided site/landscape architecture design & community outreach services for reconstruction of the Frankford Transportation Center. The intent was to improve operations and give the rider a positive experience while providing a catalyst for the economic revitalization of the surrounding area. The work involved a marketability study of local commercial opportunities, and the design emphasis was directed towards providing attractive, safe, and efficient walking and waiting areas. Synterra Ltd. led the community and merchant involvement effort by developing a public participation/information program to build consensus between the transportation authority (SEPTA), community residents, groups, and merchants to ensure a successful project. Synterra Ltd. also led the design partnership effort to promote smooth working relationships among design team members and the client.
