WOW! The Fashion District Philadelphia looks amazing so far! What an upgrade for the area. The new Burlington is open and looks very modern, chic, and clean.

Litigation is forthcoming. 100%. Unless they approve in a reconsideration hearing.

Indeed. And I'm sure that's the consensus of the Philadelphia Chapter of the SPBA (SkyscraperPage Bar Association).

Did you like the exterior upgrades? The last I saw a few weeks ago there were square grayish/black tile paneling that surrounded the ground floor windows and doors all along the first floor that covered up to the white Gallery panelling on the upper floors.

It was nice having the open windows but that particular treatment - which could be what they use for the entire redevelopment didn't look very good - kind of already looked dated and cheap to me. Maybe it's been upgraded since then?

^I was about to say the same thing. The tile they're using on the facade looks like a bathroom floor from 2005. I'm sure it will look much better when it's covering everything and things are closer to their final form, but I have to share in the disappointment of the materials they're using on the exterior of a project that's going to cost in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

I'm sure Amazon (and anyone else looking at relocating here) loves hearing about this city government union protectionist BS...

Mom's organic grocery market opened in market east last week. Defiantly going to be a boom with all the towers going up there. Much better than Whole Foods in my opinion, the whole store is actually organic -

Right...Kenney needs to check these ZBA union cronies. There is a way to do it under the radar. He could take care of it an ensure the conversion is approved in the reconsideration hearing...

They need some large pots with plants and flowers all along the store on 11th street. Looks awfully bare.

Even better. They'd already announced that they planned to appeal, but I suspect that they won't have to (hopefully).

I dont know about that. I had a friend with me from Chicago , we were driving down the Schuylkill and he commented how awesome FMC looked. He then asked what is that( 2400 Market) Is that going to be 90 stories?

Close I said. Just drop the Zero.

Its a nine story stump. .
