On that note, they should also remind Goldenberg they've got a whole block to work with around, uh, 8th and Market last time I checked? Feels like in this city, it'll go to them (because they own the adjacent site) or to Dranoff (because precedent). Goldenberg did get its act together with 1213, but Hines was the driving force there. We shall see.

Goldenberg has stated that it doesn't view the Hines partnership for 1213 to be a one-off, so perhaps that driving force will continue to be an influence in other Goldenberg projects of that type.

Gotta agree 100% here. With Dranoff sitting on an empty lot and not getting SLS off of the ground, and another project in the pipeline at Broad and Pine... he doesn't need to be holding onto another lot.

I would be happy seeing it go to LCOR or Goldenberg actually.

I know Goldenberg is much maligned on this forum for whatever reason, but I think they're doing surprisingly good work so far in the city.

1213 Walnut is a very nice project. Remember too, that Hines publicly stated they will partner with Goldenberg on any Philadelphia project going forward, and they're very bullish on Philly. This bodes well for future Goldenberg projects in Philly. Yes, they're holding on to 8th and Market, but they have publicly stated they will start to develop the lot in 3 years. I'm okay waiting for the right project here.

Remember too, that Goldenberg is building a very nice complex of highrises up by Temple. They completed the 14-story View at Montgomery in 2014, and are now moving forward with View II which will be an 18-story and 12-story development.

I'm confident either LCOR or Goldenberg will do great work with this site.

Fantastic news. And piggy-backing on that report, Brookings released a report yesterday relative to the top urban US universities for research commercialization (the crux of the report is that urban universities themselves are generally better at research commercialization), and Philly has 2 in the Top 10 (Penn at #4 and Temple at #7), and 4 in the Top 25 (Jefferson at #12 and Drexel at #25).

It's worth noting that only New York City had the same number of universities within the Top 25, and Boston had 3.

Anyone who suggests that the Philly isn't full of incredible economic capacity and potential is lying.

Temple ranked lower than UPenn, but had better numbers. Does anyone know where we fit in terms of tech innovations that could be a selling point to Amazon? I mean it would make sense that we do well in healthcare technology or innovation that leads to patents, etc. But, how does it fit with Amazon?

Temple is doing amazing work, and it will only become more apparent as the years go on! I'm currently a student in the Fox School of Business. Our rise in the rankings has been nothing short of amazing. We are now a top 50 undergraduate AND graduate business school, ranking higher than Smeal (Penn State), Lebow (Drexel), Lerner (UDel), and other area business schools. Additionally, certain programs, such as Actuarial Science, have consistently ranked in the top 10. The University itself has also been rising nicely in the rankings. This is one reason why I'm hopeful for more big development on North Broad: there is an incredible amount of human capital just north of City Hill.

Also, you are absolutely right about Philly having the economic capacity and potential! We have the location, infrastructure, and human capital necessary to compete with other innovative cities. This city has so many assets that it could leverage in order to attract companies to move to the city, both from inside and outside of the region. The time has never been better to capitalize on this, especially with so many major development plans in place!

^Temple's online MBA program is also very well regarded and is helping increase its national profile.

All of these recent reports are fantastic overall and tell the story of a thriving city. There is still an incredible amount of work to do for many people, but it's been great seeing good things afoot.

Facade of S. Broad St. health center building designated historic as developers bid for property

http://www.philly.com/philly/busines...-20171013.html

...Because 1960's low rise architecture can't possibly be destroyed on South Broad. I get there is some history, but I am on the fence with this one.

For fucks sake. There are hundreds of other buildings throughout Philadelphia that should be historically designated, and are not.... yet they waste their time designating this????

This building is nothing special at all. All we're doing is complicating development. Philadelphia LOVES to make development complicated.

This is horseshit. And so is the building.

More interesting is that Pittsburgh ranked in the top tier (#12). It somewhat confirms Pittsburgh's uniqueness as a small (compared to most other cities on the entire List) city, which significantly outweighs its peers in tech talent. Good for PA.

Work Underway On Philly’s Rail Park

Quote:
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Phase One of The Rail Park is sprouting in Philadelphia, as dozens of volunteers moved mulch, planted shrubs, and hugged newly installed trees.

The $10 million portion is the first quarter-mile stretch of the Rail Park. It rises from street level at Broad and Noble Streets, just above Callowhill, to near 11th and Callowhill Streets.

Story cont.
