Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) is a nonprofit corporation organized exclusively for the benefit of the city of Philadelphia and its citizens. DRWC acts as the steward of the Delaware River waterfront to provide benefits to all citizens of the city and to its visitors.
The fundamental purpose of DRWC is to design, develop, and manage the Central Delaware River waterfront in Philadelphia between Oregon and Allegheny Avenues, from I-95 east to the Delaware River. DRWC intends to transform the Central Delaware River waterfront into a vibrant destination location for recreational, cultural, and commercial activities for Philadelphia’s residents and visitors. DRWC will serve as a catalyst for high-quality investment in public parks and trails as well as maritime, residential, retail, hotel, and other improvements that will create a vibrant amenity, extending Philadelphia to the river’s edge.
DRWC is open, transparent, and accountable in its operations and activities with respect to the waterfront. Through the judicious use of financing, land acquisition, and development capabilities, DRWC will work cooperatively with civic groups, property owners, and its many other stakeholders, as well as with relevant city, state, and federal agencies, to ensure the successful implementation of this master plan.
