Geographic Area Covered: City of Philadelphia (Northwest Philadelphia)

Abstract: The Philadelphia City Planning Commission's Lower Northwest District Plan and transformations around Ivy Ridge Station have generated momentum for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and local neighborhood groups to consider how they should plan for change. The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) analyzed existing conditions at the station and proposed recommendations based on these findings. DVRPC recommends a series of phased physical improvements around the station to improve multimodal access to the station parking lot and platforms, coupled with coordinated policy initiatives to encourage mixed-use development. The recommendations seek to realize the neighborhood vision of Ivy Ridge Station as a local transportation hub that is attractive, safe, and accessible for all users.

Key Words: Ivy Ridge, Manayunk/Norristown Line, SEPTA, Transit-Oriented Development, TOD
