Convention Center District
The expansion of the Pennsylvania Convention Center has sparked growth throughout its neighborhood of the Convention Center District.
Exciting new public spaces are springing up around the new second entrance to the center on the Avenue of the Arts (North Broad Street)—from the Lenfest Plaza on Cherry Street, which will serve as a cultural gateway to Philadelphia’s ‘Museum Mile,’ to the area surrounding city Hall. Lenfest Plaza, a pedestrian-friendly piazza, will link the Convention Center to some of the city’s most popular attractions, enhancing the experience of convention and tradeshow attendees, as well as international visitors. Moreover, the Convention Center is serving as a catalyst to growth at existing institutions, from hotels and art museums to Temple University.
