Creating a Sense of Place

The King of Prussia District (KOP-BID) pilots aesthetic changes to make King of Prussia a handsome environment for conducting business. With over one million dollars of landscaping already implemented throughout King of Prussia, and with much more on the horizon, conducting business has never looked better.

From building public parks and bike lanes to landscaped medians, we enhance the King of Prussia aesthetic.

Since 2011, KOP-BID has landscaped roadway medians along DeKalb Pike and First Avenue.

Landscaped Medians & Roadways

Medians

Since 2011, KOP-BID has landscaped roadway medians along DeKalb Pike and First Avenue, landscaped portions of Henderson Road, and installed landscaping at the I-76 off ramp. The former concrete medians are now full of life year-round with lush perennials, shrubs, grasses, and bulbs.

Roadways

KOP-BID funded $75,000 worth of landscape improvements to Henderson Road in spring 2013, as part of the Henderson Road expansion project completed by Upper Merion Township (UMT). The landscape improvements included a mix of 495 native PA shrubs, 54 shade and ornamental flowering trees, and 750 perennials and groundcovers. In early 2013, KOP-BID installed 8,000 flower bulbs at Exit 329 off of the Schuylkill Expressway. The bulbs were donated to KOP-BID by America Responds with Love, in cooperation with the King of Prussia Mall.

Redefining a Business Park

Business Park Gateway

In summer 2014, KOP-BID completed landscape improvements at First Avenue and N. Gulph Road to create an entryway to the King of Prussia business park. The $128,000 project dramatically improved the primary entrance into the business park and included: ten (10) twenty-five foot tall flagpoles, landscape lighting, dozens of trees, hundreds of shrubs, perennials, and grasses.

Linear Park

KOP-BID, in partnership with UMT, is designing a 1.3 mile Linear Park that, once complete, will line First Avenue from N. Gulph Road to Allendale Road. The Linear Park will be located within the first 50 feet of the roadway and contain multi-use bicycle and pedestrian paths, landscaping, site lighting, benches, seating areas, and recreation areas. KOP-BID and UMT have raised more than $4M toward the design and implementation of the Linear Park and Road Diet, to date.

At the end of October 2016, KOP-BID kicked off the construction of the First Avenue Linear Park with a 450 FT Demonstration Project at 650 Park Avenue. KOP-BID will officially open the Demonstration Project in spring 2017.

King of Prussia Gateway Signs

To help define King of Prussia’s boundaries and welcome people, KOP-BID designed and managed the installation of six 22’ tall, 4.5’ wide, LED illuminated gateway signs at key intersections. KOP-BID later installed landscaping around each gateway sign.
