The Avenue of the Arts is Philadelphia’s signature street. It has grown to become the heart of our city aesthetically, socially, economically, and culturally. The Avenue is one of the most vibrant and successful performing arts, residential, educational,
commercial, and tourist destinations in the United States. The Avenue of the Arts continues to evolve with significant residential development replacing office space creating new sources for economic development and commercial growth. South Broad
Street has been recognized by the American Planning Association as one of the “Great Places of America”. The Avenue’s renowned performance venues, luxury hotels and eateries, universities, and residences are just a few reasons why the Avenue was given
this prestigious recognition.
