The 2022 Navy Yard Plan charts the next 20 years of equitable growth at the Navy Yard, delivering an estimated 12,000 new jobs, 8.9 million square feet of new mixed-use development, and $6B of new investment. This update reflects the successful development of an expanding community of 150 employers and 15,000 workers, and builds upon that success with an ambitious but achievable plan for equitable economic growth and the creation of a community to live, work, make, and play. 

From April 2021 to June 2022, a planning team led by James Corner Field Operations worked with PIDC and Ensemble/Mosaic to include more than 300 stakeholders in a comprehensive planning process. 

The Navy Yard is composed of seven districts, each with their own character and programmatic emphasis. The 2022 Navy Yard Plan celebrates the established identities of each district while envisioning future development that supports diversity and equity throughout the site.

Five Principles - One Plan

Each facet of the 2022 Navy Yard Plan is guided by framework principles that were intentionally crafted to create a new standard of equitable development. The vision put forth in the 2022 Plan reflects the Navy Yard’s future as a place that is:

  • Inclusive and welcoming to diverse users, from a new small business tenant in retail and makerspace targeting local entrepreneurs, to a visitor looking to enjoy the Navy Yard’s accessible outdoor spaces and public art.
  • Connected and multimodal, conveniently and comfortably accessed via public transit and dedicated bike lanes, with a smart and integrated system of internal circulation to maximize efficiency and foster safety and sustainability.
  • A hub for equitable business growth and job creation across a wide range of innovative industries, including cell and gene therapies, next-generation shipbuilding, and advanced manufacturing.
  • Vibrant and active, spurred by a new residential community with apartments available at a range of rental rates that will bring a greater mix of uses, services, and amenities to the Navy Yard.
  • Innovative and resilient, thanks to smart infrastructure and open spaces that integrate well-designed spaces with technical function, using forward-thinking strategies to enhance the quality of life for Philadelphians.
