Center City Leaders Prioritize Residential Growth Amid Office Slowdown

Since 2021, over 7,000 new residential units have been built in Center City, transforming its daily population over the past five years. The shift has been from office workers to a growing residential population.

This change has led to weekend foot traffic matching 2019 levels, while weekday traffic in the central business district has declined significantly.

Center City sees roughly 375,000 people each day, equating to foot traffic at 84% of 2019 levels. However, the distribution of pedestrians varies depending on who and where they are.
