Congratulations to Emma Fried-Cassorla and team (was there a team? Or was it just Emma, bleary-eyed, on the phone with designer/developer P’unk Ave deep into the night[s]?) for the new Delaware River Waterfront Corporation website, which finally provides information in truly legible fashion (and is also very clean and pretty). Previously, it was a confusing mess within an unfortunate theme-park aesthetic.
Normally, a new website wouldn’t be cause for much fuss, but this is actually important. The riverfront is increasingly a locus of activity and economic development in Philly; in fact, it’s probably the section of the city that’s undergoing the most dramatic transformation. When complete, it’ll be a change as comprehensive as the Navy Yard or Northern Liberties.
