Depends if the district is designated historic, which I imagine it is. For example, the 262 South 16th condo needed approval from the Historical Commission even though the demolished building it is replacing wasn't historic because it sits within a historic district. I'd imagine there would be somewhat more leeway for a replacement building, though, and Standard 9 doesn't apply in the same way it would for an overbuild incorporating a designated building like the Nelson Building.

Society Hill is a historic district. So, I imagine a tower replacing the mansion would still have to be reviewed by the historical committee.

I'm glad that the building got rejected in its current form, but GOD I hate some residents of Society Hill. I cannot wait for One Dock St. to go up.

They drive me crazy, too. But it happens everywhere.

I remember when there was a hotel/condo proposal out there right across from he Bridge on Race and the whole building was livid about it. "But what about our southern view?" They already had a lawyer. This huge building which required a variance right in the middle of Old City and they would not have it at ALL if another building went up.
