AthenianRazak Joins Mayor Kenney’s Workgroup to Make Philadelphia’s Shared Public Spaces More Enjoyable for All

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and The Office of Homeless Services have announced a new effort to crack down on panhandling, address chronic street homelessness and streamline outdoor meal services at the vast amount of shared public spaces throughout the city including transit stations, plazas and streets.


AthenianRazak is part of a public-private workgroup comprised of more than a dozen leaders from the business, hospitality and civic communities will partner with leaders in the Mayor’s administration to strategize and take action to ensure that public spaces in Philadelphia can be utilized safely, comfortably and with dignity and respect.


This workgroup is particularly relevant now as AthenianRazak master leases the retail space owned by SEPTA in Suburban Station. Suburban Station is a significant public space and sees roughly 100,000 passengers pass through daily.
