It would be great to see more high rise and mid rise construction this far out from Center City.
Northern Liberties and Fishtown are as popular as they've ever been (perhaps until AVI kicks in). The fact that development has jumped from townhouse and renovation projects to mid-rise and highrise construction in and around Center City, to me, makes this look viable.
