Yea architecturally this project is AWFUL. It is nice to see the density, but WOW. This is bad. This might be one of the worst designed buildings I have ever seen proposed in Greater Philadelphia.

^ I don't think the design of that is so bad, in fact, I like it better than the Residents at Midtown Park Design.

Also Re: Phillydrew:

Thanks for the compliment and thanks for recommending the diagrams section of this site for me to work on because I like drawing the buildings in Wilmington and supporting my city!

Awesome, very nice to see them take a classy antique like the Hotel Dupont and modernize it. Looks sleek and trendy, while keeping it's old charm.

Liberty Property Trust to relocate HQ to Wayne, launches $12M redevelopment of building

https://www.bizjournals.com/philadel...-to-wayne.html

Quote:
For Liberty Property Trust, after more than four decades, it’s time to move on from Great Valley.

A planned move to a modern headquarters in Wayne comes as the company plans to shed its remaining office properties in the Great Valley Corporate Center it established. Liberty has essentially completed transforming itself into an industrial real estate investment trust with a smattering of urban holdings.

“The company has pretty significantly changed over the years,” said Bill Hankowsky, CEO of Liberty.

Though its roots lie in developing industrial space in South Jersey, Liberty has long been associated with Great Valley after its predecessor company, Rouse and Associates, established the place name for the area along the Route 202 Corridor in Malvern in 1974 and went onto build a business primarily based on suburban office properties. In the years since, Liberty has evolved.

It took on urban development. It doubled down on industrial space. It moved on from owning suburban office space and is now a $9 billion real estate company with 100 million square feet of space across the United States and United Kingdom.
Lol'ing at this quote:

Quote:
“The location has that Wayne-King of Prussia, live-work-play characteristic that is analogous to what we have done at the Navy Yard and we decided to take that skill set and apply that to a building we own,” Hankowsky said.

Wilmington/Delaware news

"Wilmington's mayor wants to borrow $43 million, to be paid back over 20 years, to improve parks, playgrounds, sidewalks, fire stations, sewer systems and other infrastructure -- a plan the city treasurer called "premature and risky." ...

Hey -- at least the new mayor seems to be trying to improve the city, unlike the last mayor who literally refused to talk to local media, or basically anyone outside of his neighborhood.

https://www.delawareonline.com/story...ure/334792002/


In other news...

Claymont Renaissance Group -
-is now actively looking for other investors to redevelop the old Tri-State Mall location on the DE/PA border since a bid for Amazon HQ2 was rejected (far fetched). But the area is in a perfect location for mixed-use redevelopment, being so close to I-95, and two Septa stations - Claymont and Marcus Hook. (A new Claymont train station - larger, modern - is currently being built).

"It put out to other potential investors, 'Look at this site, look at what we're bringing to you and your business,'" said Claymont Renaissance Development Corporation Executive Director Brett Saddler about the the closed Tri-State Mall and former steel plant site.

Awesome! Glad to hear that!

Now if he could put some focus in the Vandever Avenue area (Probably the area where most Wilmington crime happens) to take some action with the crime there, Wilmington's outsider perspective could maybe change from the smallest-dangerous city in the country to one of the best places to incorporate to!

This is great news. The Tri-State Mall was a blight in an area that is otherwise quite nice. Claymont is experiencing something of a renaissance. Ardley, North Wilmington, and Garnet Valley (PA) are not far. This could be a sort of keystone that improves the quality of development in the area to link them all together.

West side of town, a short walk from the downtown area. This is an affordable housing project. You can see the early stage of construction from the google street view here: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.1319...7i13312!8i6656

Wilmington: Stitch House Brewery

Short article with some updates about the opening and a few pictures of the interior (below and click through) and food/drink menus (click through). No pictures of the bar area, sadly. That's the best part.

A new brewery looks to 'Stitch' its 'House' into Downtown Wilmington's restaurant scene

http://www.wdel.com/features/a-new-b...ed2f2c98c.html


Quote:
Stitch House Brewery is set to tap into Wilmington’s downtown scene in about a month.
...
Once open, they will be brewing a dozen different types of beers, along with a full menu, bar, and a separate room for private events.
...
Stitch House Brewing is located at 829 North Market Street in Wilmington.

Wilmington: Christina River Bike/Ped Bridge

This project is one of my absolute favorite things happening in Wilmington. The trail will connect Riverfront / Downtown Wilmington with Old Historic New Castle / Battery Park on the Delaware River (if you haven't visited, it's amazing).

Bike bridge will connect New Castle riders with downtown Wilmington

https://www.delawareonline.com/story...ton/352379002/


Quote:
Bicyclists will be able to ride from New Castle's Battery Park to the Wilmington Riverfront and into downtown when a new trail and bike bridge are completed in June, department of transportation officials said.

The state hopes the eight-mile-long pathway, which has been in the works for a decade, will provide an alternate route for commuters that will reduce vehicle congestion and pollution.
...
The $23 million project includes an arched, 345-foot long wooden bridge east of I-95, a 2,300-foot boardwalk across marshland, and a smaller bridge on Little Mill Creek that leads to the DuPont Environmental Education Center and the Riverfront.

Further south, the trail will connect with an existing 1.4-mile path that stretches to Old New Castle.

The new transportation pathway will be named the Jack Markell Trail after the former governor and biking enthusiast

New Castle County special services will maintain the pathway, Niezgoda said, and the Riverfront Development Corporation will fund security cameras and private foot patrols to secure the area.

Lights will be installed on the bike bridge but not on the rest of the trail.

Reminder of what this will look like. Should be a big improvement.
