The multicultural South 7th Street Commercial Corridor serves African American, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian, Korean, Filipino, Burmese, Indonesian, Nepalese, Pakistani, and Bhutanese families. SEAMAAC and a community task force worked with the Collaborative on placemaking strategies and façade improvement prototypes to make the corridor more welcoming, vibrant, and safe. The conceptual design focuses on priorities identified in the Mifflin Square Park and Neighborhood Plan completed in 2018.
