Central Green at the Navy Yard
Pennoni completed the design of Central Green, a five-acre green space, and a portion of 12th Street within the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The project was developed in a joint investment by Liberty Property/Synterra, PIDC, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The green space includes a 20-ft wide “social” walking track, sun lawn, restrooms, and recreational areas. The park also includes a hammock grove, a picnic-type conference table, bocce court, table tennis and fitness area along with stormwater management facilities, and landscaped areas. The design incorporates green street design to manage the first inch of runoff to be directed to and treated by the lined bio-retention basin within the Central Green site.
