Iron District, Scranton, PA

Scranton’s Iron District is intended to be a cultural and artistic link between the Downtown and South Scranton creating an important destination for heritage tourism as well as commercial activity. Working with a consortium of partners, DxDempsey developed a comprehensive vision, complete with conceptual renderings, that provides a guide for public and private initiatives which, when woven together through public policy and targeted actions, will result in a vibrant new neighborhood. At the heart of this district is the Historic Iron Furnaces, which played a significant role in Scranton’s inception. With the emergence of education, healthcare and biotech in the region and working in collaboration with other revitalization initiatives, the Iron District represents a new future for the City, providing a venue that will combine history, culture, and entertainment in a diverse, mixed-use neighborhood.
