Municipal Pier 9, the 93-year old warehouse owned by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation features over 55,000 square feet of open space that has been vacant for decades. It has been converted into Cherry Street Pier and features four zones of activity: The Hub, a food and beverage venue at the entrance to the pier; The Garage, a collaborative working space featuring shared offices and studios built out of re-purposed shipping containers; The Platform, an open programmable space for pop-up retail markets, art installations and public events; and The Garden, an open-air park and café with views of the Delaware River. This unique, post-industrial site is conveniently located at Columbus Boulevard next to Race Street Pier, making it easily accessible to visitors who are taking public transportation, walking, biking or traveling by car.
The mission of the Preservation Alliance is to actively promote the appreciation, protection, and appropriate use and development of the Philadelphia region's historic buildings, communities and landscapes. Each year the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia presents the Preservation Achievement Awards to a select group of individuals, organizations, and businesses for projects from throughout the region which exemplifies outstanding achievement in the field of historic preservation.
Grand Jury Awards celebrate the highest level of achievement in historic preservation for:
· Historic building restoration, rehabilitation, or adaptive re-use
· Sympathetic new construction or additions associated with historic properties
· Education or advocacy efforts related to historic preservation
· Documentation of significant historic resources in the built environment
Winners were selected by a jury of preservation professionals and were presented at the Alliance's award ceremony at VIE on June 5th.
