As viewed from Cira Green, the 1.25-acre rooftop park of University City’s Cira Centre South, Philadelphia’s skyline sparkles at sunrise. Cira Centre South is just one of several new and redeveloped buildings to emerge along the western side of the Schuylkill River, the waterway that separates Center City from West Philadelphia. For Cira Green, acclaimed firm Erdy McHenry Architecture designed a outdoor space that offers users both a tranquil escape from and a distinctive perspective on urban life.
