I forget what was last posted about the lot at 20th and Arch (SW corner), but they were taking up the blacktop yesterday.

FYI, walked by the Hale building and it appears a restaurant will be built on the ground floor. The retail space is still u/c but the exterior is mostly complete and looks very sharp. A thousand times better than the old facade and the dollar store that last occupied the space.

Two. A sports bar called Warehouse Bar & Kitchen will front Chestnut. http://www.warehousebk.com An all day cafe called The Hale will front Sansom.

Where the Avis was? I believe it's staying a parking lot. For now.

That's the place. It is fenced off. A few trucks were on site and, as I said, they were taking up some blacktop in chunks. May not betoken anything.

I forget who posted about that slow growing building on the south side of Arch between 9th and 10th. The OCF article that was linked wondered how it could be a hotel (which is the latest scuttlebutt) with no side windows. I took a look and it's readily apparent: They have created at least two indentations on each of the side walls - with windows. If anything goes up next to it on either side, they'll have (very small) light wells to deal with that.

Hope it does! Arch is really primed to become a mixed use extension of the central business district. With large footprint buildings. Both commercial and residential. I think they are far better suited there than Chestnut Walnut and streets further South. Those streets are made by their small footprint, shorter buildings and varied facades.

The Frankford Chocolate Factory is most of the way gone already. That was fast.

The project at the old car wash place at 42nd and Chestnut is also moving along quickly. There's a big hole in the ground there now.

Here's my hot take on the Avis site: the owners are probably gonna sit on it awhile and then sell it for a fortune to LPT after Comcast 3.0 gets built.

Some of the remaining demo will go a little slower adjacent to the part that's to remain, a lot of hand tool and air hammer work. They'll be keeping the western-most portion of the 1865 building, as well as the much later boiler house and smokestack. In the streetview linked below, along Washington from 22nd to just past the first elevator house, and 6 window bays back along 22nd will be retained.
