Station-Area Redevelopment

  • Proposed transit-oriented office building/learning center on Fleetwood Street adjacent to the new Coatesville Station (Oct 2014)
  • Work is being done in conjunction with the new station project, led by Coatesville Redevelopment Authority.
  • Includes Third Avenue streetscaping and redevelopment of Fleetwood Street.
  • Intent is to encourage transit-oriented development—a walkable and pleasant mix of residential, commercial, and office space—while preserving the architectural and historical elements of the original station building.
  • Third Avenue improvements will enhance walkability between the station and the Lincoln Highway commercial corridor, about four blocks to the south.
  • Will include making the station easier to find and use, and making the surrounding area feel safer and more inviting.
  • Design of the Third Avenue streetscaping was completed in February 2017. A construction contractor was selected in June 2017, with construction slated to begin in mid-2017 and be completed within approximately one year.

  • BEFORE: Current conditions on Third Avenue between Coatesville Station and Route 30.

  • AFTER: Rendering of planned improvements to Third Avenue pavement, striping, sidewalks, crosswalks, curb ramps, planters, lighting, and bicycle racks.
