I am actually super into the PMC project on the waterfront. I could actually see this selling out even if the condo/rental market is cooling down. That Logan Square area is highly desirable and is almost recession proof.

That Trader Joe's is so insanely busy-- lines for checkout usually go up and down the aisles at peak hours (I've literally been in a line 100+ deep for checkout there), and even non-peak times it's packed. TJ's is making a killing there. Between the work crowd and Logan Square locals (and addition of how many new residents w/ this project), a second grocery store is needed, and would do really well (whatever the brand it is).

Amazon is expanding in NYC:

There's a great city just a short train ride away, very convenient to the New York offices...

Can't wait to see Comcast offer their support for this!

They'd better. We already know Amazon wants Boston, even though it has everything they hate about Seattle. If companies in Boston rally enough support, Amazon will choose it. If we want it, we need every bit of help we can get.

I noticed The Lift at Juniper (automated garage to the east/southeast of the Hale building) had its entrance/exit framed with wooden studs yesterday afternoon and this morning its boarded up. http://www.theliftparking.com/default.aspx says its being renovated (that info was tricky to find, the main website redirects to brandywine.com) while Google Maps is saying "Permanently Closed". The Lift has become pretty crummy looking the past few years with repeatedly broken bollards and glass panes along Juniper so I'm hoping it is closed for renovations.
Is the back of the Hale Bldg the gay steam room Tom Hanks got AIDS in?

Those who are interested should fill out the CCD annual survey which supposedly influences their priorities and investments.

Unless... Trader Joe's wants to move sites and expand. Then PMC could activate the ground floor of 2121 Market front Market Street, and develop the parking lot in the bank fronting JFK?
I've been thinking Shop Rite or Fresh Grocer (same dif) tbh. The new grocery spaces going in -- here, Lincoln Square -- seem to be just far enough apart that the same chain'll be wanting to take them, and the metro's largest grocer doesn't have any CC presence at all.

Continuing a discussion from a different thread:

The entire area from 19th Street back to the Tower, being a priority.
Tbh my thought is that once 95's current capping project is done I'd designate sites facing the Market, Chestnut, Walnut, Dock, and South street crossings (as well as the Front Street frontage in Society Hill) as future development opportunities to knit Penn's Landing into the broader urban fabric. I'd focus greenway capping on the Vine from 8th to 20th while having the last two blocks be development sites associated with redevelopment on the upper Parkway.

Essentially, the flow is: Do 95's current capping project -> cap the Vine while developing out Penn's Landing's existing building sites -> look at creating development sites atop 95 once Penn's Landing's fully built out.

Have all of those actually put something toward bringing Amazon to Philly? If so, that's a really good assortment, especially with Comcast.

What do you mean by development sites atop 95? Do you mean further capping of I-95 adjacent to the Park Cap on which buildings are placed? Like Hudson Yards?
