TIGER Funding Spurs Transit Plaza and Park in Philadelphia

Flush with federal grants, a new transit plaza and park is set to pop up in Philadelphia.

"Framed by two sweeping pavilions shaping a gateway to one of Philadelphia's busiest transit hubs, a proposed $55 million Dilworth Plaza redesign seeks to replace an unwelcoming concrete space on the west side of City Hall with expanses of grass and pools forming a civic front yard for the city.
