As developers (and students) descend on Mantua, residents look to rezone

Project like this one at 35th and Haverford, a block from where last week’s meeting to talk about rezoning took place, has many Mantua residents worried about displacement and gentrification (Photo by West Philly Local).

    As developers (and students) descend on Mantua, residents look to rezone | West Philly Local
    Posted on 03 May 2016 As Drexel University's residential footprint continues to creep north, Mantua residents are turning to rezoning to keep their neighborhood diverse. Roughly bound by Spring Garden Street to the south, Mantua Avenue to the north and 31st Street and 40th Street to the east and west respectively, Mantua has become a focal point for developers looking to cash in on the relatively cheap stock of rowhomes and vacant lots.

That's how some bicyclists feel about me. Mostly just those who ignore the rules of the road, plus some who are afraid to ride without bicycle lanes.

    Eventually, the program will expand to 185 stations, said Cara Ferrentino, Indego program manager at OTIS. To attract enough riders, stations need to be located fairly close to one another and in dense neighborhoods. Those limitations make more rapid and ranging network expansions-to the lower Southwest, or Bustleton, or East Falls, say-impractical.

Philly expands bikeshare program after a booming first year

West of the Schuylkill, new stations will come online at 34th Street and Mantua Avenue, 42nd Street and Lancaster Avenue, and 46th and Market. The last of those is likely to be a connector point for Indego riders throughout West Philadelphia to SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line.

There's a heavy emphasis on neighborhoods north and west of Center City in the new round of stations. Eight of them will be in a swath of the city bounded by Fairmount and Pennsylvania Avenues to the south, 33rd and Dauphin to the northwest and 22nd Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue to the east.

West of the Schuylkill, new stations will come online at 34th Street and Mantua Avenue, 42nd Street and Lancaster Avenue, and 46th and Market. The last of those is likely to be a connector point for Indego riders throughout West Philadelphia to SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line.

The existing station at 18th and Fernon remains the southernmost station. But as Indego plans to take its total number of stations to over 100, there are designs to head toward the hot restaurants on East Passyunk Avenue, the stadiums at the Sports Complex and, eventually, the Navy Yard.
