To meet the longstanding need to enhance the streetscape in this locale, the Race Street Connector project of 2011 added wider sidewalks and landscaping to this street. In announcing funding from the William Penn Foundation for these improvements, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter declared: “We will have one of the best waterfronts in America.”
