PRPA Hosts Briefing on Southport Project

In anticipation of the release of a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) on September 23, Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA) Chairman Jerry Sweeney and officials of PRPA held an informational briefing on its Southport Project at a meeting space on the Delaware River waterfront yesterday.

In the audience were about 100 members of the Philadelphia maritime community and other stakeholders interested in what the Southport project will bring to the city and region.

This briefing, conducted by PRPA Executive Director James T. McDermott, Jr. and PRPA’s market advisors Ernst & Young and Hatch Mott Macdonald, covered current plans and timelines, and allowed audience members to share their views on the ambitious Southport Project, the first major expansion of the Port of Philadelphia in years.

Three waterfront sites collectively comprise the Southport complex: the Southport Marine Terminal site (119 acres); Southport West (75 acres) and the Pier 124 North Berth, a 1,132-foot finger pier.
