Chinatown Future Histories: Public Space and Equitable Development


In 2019, Urban Partners served on a consulting team led by PolicyLink and Sarah Yeung of Sojourner Consulting studying how pubic/private investment in green spaces can help promote equitable development, using Philadelphia Chinatown as a case study. This important study was commissioned by the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation (PCDC) with the support of William Penn Foundation and Knight Foundation.


A technical report on reinvesting the value generated by the Rail Park and other public spaces was completed by Urban Partners and Strategic Economics of Berkeley, CA.
