University City District really knows how to do things right. It’s not only that their projects tend to be functional, popular and successful. It’s that when they have to present quote-unquote boring material, they know it’s better if it looks like candy.
Carefully examine the thorough case study results of UCD’s most popular project, The Porch at 30th Street Station, below, and you’ll see that the visuals by Interface Studio pleasingly evoke the sweetness of grape juice and the sticky tang of watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Also, remember Fun Dip? This report, visually, is the Fun Dip of case studies.

The Porch at 30th Street Station is back with another year of programming and Wednesdays and Fridays mean food trucks.
The food trucks schedule at The Porch
Imagine a venue with great food, high traffic, ample space, an outdoor patio, and magnificent views of the city skyline and river. A place like that is an impossible find, it’s an ideal to most restaurateurs, and one that’s usually only found in their imaginations. It exists, though, and it’s looking to be filled.
University City District and The Porch at 30th Street is calling all vendors, all mobile eateries, all meals on wheels, to be a part of their upcoming season, to up the ante on a property that has completely revamped itself from a place that once was just a bunch of parking spots. Last year, those that parked at the Porch found themselves in a very lucrative position, both physically and financially. Once a week, in only three hours, 2-4 trucks sold over 250 meals—those are busy-restaurant numbers.
