Center City Philadelphia has been transformed into a vibrant, expanding 21st-century downtown. The Center City District Foundation seeks to build on this success with new projects that enhance downtown gateways, establish signature boulevards, create new neighborhood amenities and enhance existing  CCD-managed parks with cultural and educational programming for all age groups. Building on today’s optimism, the CCDF is a reliable conduit to achieve high quality results, to support the continued transformation of Philadelphia’s downtown and to create new job opportunities.
