About

Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation (“PHDC”) and the development team of Haverford properties and Jefferson Apartment Group (the “Developer”) announce a two-stage process by which they will award and commission public artwork at the Riverview development to be located at Festival Pier, at Spring Garden Street and Columbus Boulevard. The Property is being developed in coordination with the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority, which adopted PHDC’s Percent for Art Program, which requires developers building on land acquired from the public sector to commit one percent (1%) of their construction costs to original, site-specific works of art.

PHDC and the Developer seek to commission a high-quality, original, and site-specific permanent public artwork that is integrated with the design of the Property, buildings, and public spaces. A large scale, exterior, interactive Art Project is envisioned for the Property. The use of light or water as a medium, although not required, is of interest to the team.
