Please keep SLS International comments in the appropriate thread.

My comment is intended for the Eastern Tower and not SLS. SLS has never had a start date if I recall correctly, only presented a proposal.

Is anybody surprised?

Eastern Tower Community Center still waits to break ground

Quote:
The 23-story tower was supposed to break ground before the end of 2016, after the project received $1.3 million from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) in October.

But a recent visit to the site at 1001 Vine Street revealed a nearly full parking lot, and no signs of construction.

Sarah Yeung, director of planning for the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation, told Curbed Philly that they had no update on the groundbreaking and that their lawyers are still finalizing the $76 million project’s finances.

Meanwhile, a construction permit for the building is still active with Licenses & Inspections, according to public records. The permit calls for a 21-story tower versus 23.

The Eastern Tower Community Center at 10th and Vine streets has been floating around since 2008. The current plan is for the center to include 21,000 square feet of office space, 8,700 square feet of retail space, 17,000 square feet of recreation and event space, and 150 residential units.

When the project does break ground, construction is estimated to take about one year. Stay tuned.

If this building does not start construction soon, does it get its RACP grant taken away after a certain time period.

I think in many cases they simply insert the last publicly known info on these projects. The only case where it appears they got inside info was on the 1910 chestnut project.
