Also, it's great that this won an award. Now all we can do is wait for things to start coming up.
It's the old Cira II site
(NW corner of 30th and JFK), but not the old Cira II proposal
. That proposal was tied to Brandywine's option on the site, which lapsed a few years ago. Amtrak recently went to market for a new developer...Brandywine may end up there again, but it's unclear whether the building will be the same. Likely not, given that so much office space is now planned for Schuylkill Yards, and this is a particularly small / difficult site for office.
