The Patio, 3600 Philadelphia Pike

Drop-in Open House: 5-7 p.m. and 7:30-8 p.m.
Interactive displays & conversation with the project team

Presentation: 7 p.m.

The workshop solicited ideas for northern Claymont's future, including plans for the Claymont Train Station. The presentation provided information regarding recommendations based on community feedback that impact:
  • Community & economic development
  • Access to jobs, retail & services
  • Transportation by road, rail, water, transit, walking & bicycling
  • New residential, commercial & industrial development
This is the third and final Workshop on the Master Plan!
The North Claymont area has a mix of industrial, commercial, and residential sites and is located north and east of the Claymont Hometown Overlay District. Much of the area is currently underutilized and presents a significant opportunity for economic development given its access to a variety of transportation options.

Notable sites for potential redevelopment include the  Tri-State Mall and the former Claymont Steel site. Tri-State Mall is an older shopping center that opened in 1970 and currently comprises 513,896 square feet. Activity and occupancy at the mall have declined in recent years, creating a great potential for redevelopment.  The former Claymont Steel closed in 2013 and plans are being finalized for purchase of the property by a group of private companies interested in redevelopment.
