Chester Waterfront Master Plan
This master plan is transforming 100 acres of land along Chester’s riverfront, enhancing community access to the waterfront, and encouraging reinvestment in the underutilized area. The project is centered on Subaru Park, home to the Philadelphia Union MLS team, and offers an iconic view of the Commodore Barry Bridge. Beyond the soccer stadium and an office complex, the area is primarily brownfields and parking lots. Langan’s experience with the project site and associated regulatory agencies helped streamline coordination and buy-in from stakeholders and regulators. We identified viable ways to phase in transportation and utility improvements over time, and developed strategies for sustainable and resilient redevelopment, street grids, pedestrian and bicycle networks, utility connections, reconfigured stadium parking, and future transit and rail improvements.
