Urban Design

The newsstand project was initiated by The Newsstand Association of Philadelphia, which represents newsstand owners and operators. The design was developed through extensive cooperation among city agencies, operators, and stakeholders.

Two prototypes were approved by the Art Commission of Philadelphia and are located at 4th and Chestnut Streets and 12th and Market Streets. Additional versions, modified with a flat roof, have been installed throughout Center City and West Philadelphia.
