An extension of the historic Reading viaduct, ELEVATED is a living bridge connecting the rising loft district with Center city Philadelphia. ELEVATED begins 20 feet above street level spans over 300 feet, and lands after Vine Street behind the Pennsylvania Convention Center. ELEVATED was designed to encourage direct pedestrian traffic in both directions, prompting the creation of a prominent central circulation. ELEVATED houses over 57,820 square feet of commercial and residential space. To achieve the span, a truss tube was used with a superstructure that brings the project to the ground.
