Amtrak invites bids for Philadelphia station

Amtrak is seeking a master developer to serve as its partner for updates to Philadelphia 30th Street Station.

It has release of a request for qualifications (RFQ) as the start of a two-phase process that will result in the selection of a preferred developer. The partner will assist in introducing new customer amenities, reinvigorating the retail and commercial potential of the station, enhancing transit and pedestrian circulation and expanding the station’s concourses.

Amtrak senior program manager Natalie Shieh said: “By partnering with the right development team, Amtrak will update this world class transportation hub for the traveling public and for the city of Philadelphia, its next great neighborhood.”

The historic 30th Street Station is the third busiest in Amtrak’s national system, serving more than four million Amtrak passengers and a total of more than 12 million rail commuters each year. Amtrak has recently made capital investments at 30th Street Station totalling over US$85m, including refurbishment of the building facade, improvements to the public restrooms, replacement of the passenger elevators and escalators and restoration of the historic bronze entrance doors.
