The applicant, the Schuylkill River Development Corporation, proposes to construct a 1,850 linear foot (12’ wide) pedestrian trail between the waterward terminus of 56th Street and 61st Street, City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The project would include the construction of a fishing platform on top of an existing seawall structure at the edge of the Schuylkill River just downstream of 56th Street and an overlook pier approximately 1,325 feet further downstream. The applicant’s stated purpose for the structures is to allow for safe public access to the river and to provide views closer to the river. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment. Public comments are due by Sept. 7, 2020.
