While those that just care about pretty pictures ooh and ahh at the these renderings, the rest of us are crossing our fingers for a ground level that isn't nearly at monolithic.
Yes, absolutely.

If you look at the plan, there is actually way more attention paid to the public realm and ground level than big towers. It's just that the 6 or so fancy renderings with towers got all the press. There are 20+ eye level renderings in the plan showing various interventions within the station, public realm improvements, etc.

Welcome to the forum!
Might have to wait a while for those dreams though.

Sorry to be a little off topic. But I just want to say I hope they build some of this sooner ha. I got the call nobody ever wants to get earlier this week. I went from thinking I was a completely healthy 26 y/o to being diagnosed with a rare form of non hodgkin's lymphoma. So if Brandywine, if you are out there, please convince Vanguard to move to a new super tall and I can watch it as I get treatment at UPenn. Fate has sealed the deal, I won't be making it to the end of this plan.

Thanks man. It's been very tough for my family and especially my fiancé. We have built such a wonderful life in Philadelphia and just moved to Rittenhouse a month ago. I love following all the posts from everyone and I really want to be here to see the city at its full potential. I have faith that Penn will deliver the best care possible.

B 17 / Laetrile worked for my friend. I think it has to be taken in large dosages. I've almost died many times (in the most horrific way) from UC, you've got this.

Also I'd recommend a very pure diet. Only food from the amish at reading terminal and absolutely nothing with sugar in it. Also only < 15 ppm water from either an in house distiller or RO filter. That's the only thing that works for me.

TempleGuy1000, I hope the best to you! I'm not much older than you and my wife got diagnosed with a rare colon cancer 2 years ago (we were 28, worst year of my life), luckily it hasn't spread to our knowledge and everything is in the clear. She got treated at HUP and we loved their care. Good luck, you and your fiance will be in my thoughts and prayers.

TempleGuy1000, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I second what MikeNigh mentioned about diet, and sugar avoidance. I know some people who have had success taking that route.

Completed in June 2016, the Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan is a long-range, master planning effort led by Amtrak, Brandywine Realty Trust, Drexel University, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority to develop a comprehensive vision for the future of the 30th Street Station District in the year 2050 and beyond. The 30th Street Station District will become Philadelphia’s next great neighborhood: a place to live, work, learn, and play near one of the nation’s busiest and most important transportation hubs and accessible to one-of-a-kind urban and natural amenities.

The biggest takeaway from the video for me is that it seems like there is favorable politics for the plan. That's a good sign.
