The big hang up so far has been the ever speedy process of asbestos abatement. As soon as they are finished with that I imagine the building will come down pretty quickly.

Work in Progress sign for East Market is up. I wish I could have stayed until it was up completely for a better picture, but I would have been late for work.
Thanks to whoever gets a closeup.

They plan to block Market Street? The entire street along the site or a portion?

Most of the work has been inside the building but they did tear up the sidewalk in the alley across from Mitchell and Ness.

I have hated this blighted block-long suburban mcdonalds looking piece of shit since i was a kid. The asses who initially conceived of this 40+ years ago - by demolishing the top 7 floors of Snellenberg's, stripping what was left, and capping it with that fucked sheet metal crown - ought to be in jail for crimes against humanity.

This building is one of the greatest affronts to Center City urbanity ever. It screams "that I exist shows Philadelphia has no class and no confidence".

Honestly, i never thought i would see the day when this came down. I am not exaggerating when i say it gives me a new hope for Philadelphia that a developer finally has enough belief in the city to remove such an embarrassing blemish from the city scape.

love it, and you

I sincerely dislike wasting posts on what I call non-productive posts ( add nothing and do not forward the discussion/knowledge on the development of Philadelphila) but I just had to stop and congratulate Cro Bur on his post. It was seriously funny and seriously serious at the same time. I appreciated the liberal vs. scant use of profanity, the bold vs. shy application of criticism. I loved all of it. I loved it, and Cro. Thank you.

I'm astonished someone allowed a developer to destroy that beautiful old building. That seriously is treason against the urban fabric.
