The applicant, the City of Philadelphia and John Bartram Association, proposes to construct a circular “FloatLab” floating educational structure within the Schuylkill River at the waterward terminus of 56th Street, City of Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. The proposed project would consist of the installation of a partial landing platform and gangway that would lead out to the FloatLab ring (approximately 75 feet in diameter). The applicant’s stated purpose for the FloatLab is to highlight improvements of the water and not simply the waterfront and was designed for the purpose of educating and connecting the community to the Schuylkill River. Comments are requested by Dec. 24, 2020. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment.
