It's great to see some plans are being made for this extremely important corridor. It's lined with planning failures. It can't be discussed too much because decisions are happening now for it's future. The most important aspect of these new proposals is how they address Columbus Blvd/Delaware Ave.

I think they might consider this as another option. It's like a tram with out rails.

You mean a bus?

I would much rather use the existing rail rather than tear out what's there.

The railless tram makes sense on Del Ave. I’d be easier to roll that out than to restore the rail and make changes to the center median which has beautiful flowers now, in my opinion. It’s a decent compromise especially since there’s very little foot traffic on that street.

Awesome! A big improvement that will make that part of broad st look a lot less desolate. It's pretty attractive and broad street is the most important street to fill in imo. I used to live around there before Lincoln square and it was probably the worst stretch of Broad this close to CC

Really amazing to see S. Broad taking off past Washington. I would never have thunk it when I moved back here at the end of 2011. Now we just need to replace the Suburban style McDonald's, Rite Aid, and Popeyes. And, of course, get something good at the site of the Blatstein "sky village"' proposal. I've also really been struck how nice Western South Street is every time I've walked the stretch from Broad to the river the last year or so. Lots of cool little retail, beer gardens, restaurants, etc...it gets better all the time. That promises to continue with some OCF and other projects. South Philly and Southwestern Center City is booming!

The Papa John's shown on the far left of that rendering recently closed so I am/was wondering whether they will also be including that lot in their development plans. I haven't noticed any equipment on site, but that's great to see. I live kind of close and this will do a lot to decrease Broad Street scuzziness endemic to this area.

I don't know if this is a current proposal but the pic shows there is a shovel on site.

That's a very attractive building. I understand the area can't support anything taller (at least until 1001 S Broad can be built), so I'm fine with the height.

I like it. It's scale is appropriate. There are upscale amenities visible, like balconies. I would only stress that it could be taller because there is subway station a block away perhaps justifying a taller building. S Broad in general could be taller than the immediate surroundings. Transit-oriented development and all.
It's definitely good to see this.

I can't say Philly has reached a tipping point where we must all go highrise. Plenty of lots around that should get develop first like low and mid-rise in the non CMX 4 or 5 template. Let's get all the crappy or dilapidated lots or empty lots developed, then when opportunity arises, go for the tall high-rises in appropriate neighborhoods/lots zoned for CMX-5 that will likely be mixed use since no single highrise can just support residential, not at this point anyways.

The shovel has been there for over a week not doing anything. I think I remember a shovel being there a while ago as well. I hope I'm wrong, but this may just be storage.

Anybody know why there's a construction crane sprouting from the roof of the office building at 7th & Arch?
Just above Billy Penn's head.

I noticed the other day that the second phase of the development at 25th and Washington is pretty far along.





Graduate Square


If anyone is curious phase one of this project fronts Grays Ferry Ave and was some townhomes and duplexes: 2500 Graduate Square St. - Google Maps

I am still pretty amazed the townhouses commanded the prices they did given the proximity to the railway and gas facility.

^ What prices did the townhomes sell for? Phase II that's underway is the 5 story mixed use building?
