Currently, there is exciting revitalization throughout the District with the opening of Target, TD Bank, California Pizza Kitchen and Chipotle on the Philadelphia side of City Avenue between Presidential and Monument Avenues. In addition, the recently announced plans by 6abc WPVI-TV/DT adds to the renewed energy as the station plans to re-build and expand their studios at the corner of City and Monument Avenues.
City Avenue continues to be the most successful office market in Pennsylvania – a center for broadcasting and entertainment, hi-tech communications, research, the arts, law and medicine - and home to prestigious educational institutions, most notably St. Joseph's University and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and thriving business. CityAve is a hub for broadcasting. More than a dozen TV and radio stations reside in the District, making us a media mecca. Positioned between the vibrant city of Philadelphia and the incomparable Township of Lower Merion, City Avenue’s unlimited possibilities for economic growth through community realization are extraordinary. It is a blank canvas with the potential to reveal a masterpiece.
A City Avenue Community, formed by a balanced mix of residences, offices, schools, stores, restaurants and institutions, a place where people can live, work, play and learn.
As a community, to recognize City Avenue's current strengths and challenges; to identify and evaluate the ways that those who live and work within this and the wider area are grossly underserved today, particularly in the areas of residential, retail, personal services and restaurants; and to broadly communicate these findings and to suggest plans that encourage determined investigation and the discovery of significant opportunity, subsequently attracting the financial, personal and organizational commitment and investment required to realize our vision.
