The Fall issue of Context is expected to hit the streets in October! In this issue, like the very first issue of the publication that appeared in the spring of 2007, we focus on city planning and how it can attract people, jobs and ultimately people’s perception. From industrial space repurposing to private development in the University City District, we show how Philadelphia is growing on a local, regional, and national scale.
