Event description
Paul R. Levy will discuss some of the highlights of the Center City District’s recent State of Center City report.

About this Event

Paul R. Levy is the founding chief executive of Philadelphia’s Center City District (CCD), serving in that capacity since January 1991. The CCD is a $26.5 million downtown management district, which provides security, cleaning, place marketing, promotion, planning and capital improvement services for the central business district of Philadelphia. To date, the CCD has completed $155 million in streetscape, lighting, façade improvements and four parks in Center City that the CCD manages, including Dilworth, Sister Cities, Cret and Collins Parks. In the spring of 2018, the CCD completed construction on phase one of the Viaduct Rail Park, converting the former, derelict Reading Railroad elevated rail line into a public park, analogous to NYC’s High Line.

Mr. Levy also serves as executive director of Central Philadelphia Development Corporation (CPDC), an advocacy and planning organization supported by the downtown business community.

Mr. Levy holds an MA. and Ph.D. in history from Columbia University and an undergraduate degree in history from Lafayette College. He serves on the boards of many civic organizations, including the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau, and chairs the board of the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation.
