Proposal Pier 70: Teedyuscung River Center
Image above from the design proposal for an initiative to redevelop portions of Philadelphia's waterfront. The small, colorful building at left is a proposed SEPTA subway stop connecting the public transit system to this long neglected part of the city. The larger building is the proposed Teedyuscung River Center, named for the chief of the Delaware Indians who negotiated the pact with William Penn. The design represents a blending of modern architecture with familiar patterns in the culture of the Delaware Indians, the tribe that dominated this part of the Delaware River before the arrival of Europeans.
The master plan was for approximately 10 acres of Delaware River shorefront, currently being focused on by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and other city, state and federal organizations for redevelopment.
