Mary Margaret Jones is set to revitalize Penn’s Landing after PennDOT pledged $100 million for plans to connect Center City to the river in order to activate the water’s edge.

Mary Margaret Jones told The Architect’s Newspaper that PennDOT would be “taking over” the scheme and Hargreaves Associates will begin working with fellow New York engineering practice Pennoni.

Jones explained that the news follows a “rigorous and comprehensive” feasibility study which was carried out by her firm and estimated costs to come to $250 million. The park is set to connect Center City to the river and activate the water’s edge as well as pave the way for establishing future development sites.
