Downloadable PDF: Vision2026





Philadelphia and Old City continue to grow in population, and Vision2026 is an attempt to embrace this change and shape the future of Old City, setting a vision for optimal private development and a high quality public realm.
Vision2026 began in June 2015 with a community conversation about shaping the future of Old City. The resulting framework plan is the product of an initial phase of input, research, analysis, and consideration of best practices.

The Vision2026 plan supplements the Philadelphia City Planning Commission’s Philadelphia2035 plan and positions Old City to achieve important accomplishments in time for Philadelphia’s 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
