The University City District (UCD), working in conjunction with Andropogon Associates landscape architects, SEPTA, the City of Philadelphia, and a committee of neighborhood stakeholders, is working to transform the 40th Street Trolley Portal. UCD has devised a plan to turn the concrete space into a vibrant, green, pedestrian-friendly plaza with a café. The two-phase plan calls for an increase in green space on the site, which is located on 40th Street between Baltimore and Woodland avenues. UCD has committed $650,000 for the first phase of the project, which could begin this year.
