PHILADELPHIA – Amtrak is advancing planning and design for one of the more visible projects of the Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan, Station Plaza, the grand civic place surrounding all four sides of 30th Street Station. On July 12, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the North Waiting Room at 30th Street Station, Amtrak will host an open house for members of the public to review concepts for Station Plaza at 30th Street Station. The event is an opportunity for interested parties to learn more about the project, ask members of the project team questions and most importantly, provide feedback.
