University City Core Plan.
Philadelphia City Planning Commission, PA.
A redevelopment plan for an urban core area of about 300 acres was warranted by--(1) unsuitable building conditions, (2) undesirable land usage, and (3) faulty traffic circulation. The plan includes expansion of two universities and creation of a regional science center, high school, and medical center. Guidelines for proposed land use and zoning were developed to facilitate the redevelopment. Diagrammatic proposals for--(1) the science center, (2) land usage, (3) zoning, (4) circulation, (5) street changes, and (6) the site plan, as well as photographs of existing conditions, comprise the graphic presentation. Project implementation in terms of housing of displaced families, acquisition costs and continuing controls, is briefly reviewed. (MH)
