Over the past two decades the Avenue of the Arts, Inc (AAI) has become a major contributor to the region’s economy, providing significant opportunities to attract people and investment.
The Avenue is Philadelphia’s signature street. It’s where the region gathers when it celebrates its champions, commemorates the New Year and demonstrates endurance with the Broad Street Run.
It is where symphonies perform, dancers glide, curtains rise and citizens stroll.
The Avenue is a hub for commerce during the day and the center of vitality in the evening. While AAI has accomplished much in its twenty-year history, there is more to realize. Many milestones
were achieved under the passionate vision of former Governor Edward G. Rendell, including; operations begin in 1993, groundbreaking for the South Broad streetscape and Freedom’s new theater,
Ritz –Carlton Hotel opens, plans for the Kimmel Center are unveiled, the Avenue North movie complex, PA Convention Center expansion and much more.
