Philadelphia’s Rail Park nears completion!
The transformation of the Reading Railroad Viaduct into Philadelphia’s first elevated green space is nearing completion; the park is expected to open sometime in the spring. Now in fabrication, CG has designed a spectacular 80′ corten steel wall that captures the gritty history of the Callowhill Industrial District, now on the National Register of Historic Places. The steel wall is laser cut with a map of the city, company logos, buildings, product advertisements from the period and the rail lines that once serviced the manufacturers that operated there at the turn of the century.
