Plans move ahead for Dilworth Plaza, Reading Terminal Market redesigns

    JoAnn Greco spent Friday at the Historical Commission meeting, where residents and businesses went before the commission to request approval for various renovations and redesigns.

    Several items rounded out the agenda, making for a very dense meeting. Lucky for you, JoAnn went on behalf of PlanPhilly, which broke down the meeting into key parts.

    The biggest items were Dilworth Plaza and Reading Terminal Market, whose redesign plans are both moving forward. Work could be begin at Dilworth as early as this fall, with an expected two-year completion date. Reading Terminal Market is looking at an event room, larger bathrooms and administrative space.

    Belmont Manion, Germantown Academy and Emanuel Evangelical Church also presented redesign plans, along with some private residents’ requests.
