In September 2017, at its 16th annual Builders Conference, the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia explored Delaware riverfront development, an issue that has vexed Philadelphia for years. Now, new investment and opportunity are generating momentum, but also present potential pitfalls.

Speakers and panelists discussed how to protect the character of riverfront neighborhoods, safely convert formerly industrial land to residential and mixed use, incorporate recreational amenities, rebuild necessary infrastructure and more.
