River Station

 
 

Home > Projects > Planning Projects > River Station

The Hankin Group is transforming a former industrial power station site located in the Borough of Downingtown and East Caln Township along the Brandywine River and adjacent to the SEPTA line into a new town center. The center will include a new regional SEPTA rail station in combination with a mixed-use retail and apartment complex that will grace a new regional park along the Brandywine River. CVDA was requested to revise the proposed Town Center Plan to enhance placemaking, walkability, and to create an exciting landscape character that would help define the new development to promote walkability and placemaking.
 
A recreation amenity package and an overall park plan for the area along the Brandywine River were developed to promote the natural features of the existing wooded landscape. Storm water management was integrated seamlessly into the park and open space amenity areas. A bridge connection was developed to connect the new development and park to an existing park across the river as part of a regional park and open space network.
