Project: Mt Airy USA Transit Village

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Developer: Mt Airy USA

Date: 2010

Project Architect: Piatt Associates inc.

The masterplan and conceptual architectural design for this mix-used development adjacent to an intra-urban train station included 100 apartments and 50,000 s.f. of retail and community uses such as daycare and medical offices. The plan created well scaled public squares, corners and pedestrian ways with spaces dened by a variety of building characters, some reusing existing stone structures. Parking was distributed around the site to reduce its visual impact from the street and also from within the site. Tenant space for neighborhood stores, including grocery, cafe-bakery, restaurant, clothing, as well as professional offices and services will begin to establish the area as a focus of community life.
