Additional retail attractions will include Tiny Tildie’s Toy Box, an outpost of the mighty Tildie’s Toy Box on East Passyunk Avenue, and Osayi Osunde’s Fit's newest location Academy. Waving from the Center of Piazza Pod Park will be BEBOT, a 33-foot tall, 13,000-pound robot from Burning Man. Look for seating for up to 300 people. Connecting The Piazza and Piazza Pod Park to the Market/Frankford Line of SEPTA will be an outdoor art installation created out of 185 pulsing and colorful ThinkCubes. Entertainment will include food festivals, themed happy hours, yappy hours, outdoor concerts, food and drink workshops, and other special events.
Next to BEBOT, at the center of the park, look for a two-level enclosed and climate-controlled dining pod with a roof deck with unparalleled views of the park, the night’s entertainment, and of course, the robot himself. Surrounding BEBOT and the dining pod are 14 colorful repurposed shipping containers, spread out in the four zones in one oversize semi-circle.
