Contract Opportunities

Reading Terminal Market has received a grant from ArtPlace America for a creative placemaking initiative on the 1100 block of Filbert Street. ArtPlace America is a national consortium of funders that invests in creative placemaking projects in which the arts play a central role in planning and development.

The Market seeks a firm to lead a design process that will engage multiple stakeholders, including people who both live and work in the community and a contracted Arts Curator, in the creation of a design vision and public space management plan to transform the bleak underpass that connects the Market with a multi-modal transit hub into a welcoming outdoor space that integrates the arts. The goal is to create a realistic, achievable plan with broad-based support, transforming a dark, unappealing block into a vibrant, hospitable space linking some of Center City Philadelphia's most important places, and creating outdoor space for events and performances at Reading Terminal Market. The year-long project will also include developing and testing early interventions.
