Mifflin Square Park

Mifflin Square Neighborhood, Philadelphia, PA

The Mifflin Square Park and Neighborhood Plan was developed to improve the park and surrounding neighborhood while ensuring that current residents have a say in the neighborhood’s development and benefit from it. The design team, consisting of Hector Design and Hinge Collective, set out to build community power and prosperity by working with a broad resident coalition, strengthening business and shopping, and preserving affordable housing. Through a series of multiple touch points with various community groups and organization including 21 languages, the design team worked with residents to build models, draw plans, organize events, and gather data about what the eventual design should be. The project, still underway, will result in a series of documents outlining the engagement efforts that were performed and conceptual designs for future implementation.
