Boathouse Row
Philadelphia, PA

Just in time for the city’s Fourth of July celebration, Philadelphia’s historic Boathouse Row received a high-tech lighting makeover in June 2005. Made possible by Color Kinetics’ intelligent solid-state lighting technology, the new lighting system replaced a 30-year-old incandescent system that required frequent and costly maintenance. By installing the LED-based system, the Fairmount Park Commission expects to save approximately $57,000 in annual operating costs!

A popular Philadelphia landmark, Boathouse Row comprises twelve boating clubs in ten, architecturally distinct buildings along a half-mile stretch of the Schuylkill River. Prior to the relighting project, the Fairmount Park Commission was spending more than $50,000 per year on bulb replacement and $8,000 per year on energy costs.
