^ Just wow. Very evocative of The Bridge. However, their German sucks. There's no umlaut over the u in Haus.

Wow, very ambitious project!! But as mentioned by Knights, could really do without the kitsch of the silly, misplaced umlaut.

This is awesome! But is it legitimate? I'm always very weary of "proposals" that are only found on the website of architecture firms, like this one. Who owns the site? Who's the developer? For all we know, a developer engaged with the firm to get a really cool design and will then flip the land, permits, and design for a profit.

I really hope this is legitimate or I might have to wring Summer's neck for getting me all excited about this If there was a prototype of good design for the Delaware Riverfront, THIS is it. Engaging, awesome design, pedestrian friendly, this is an A+ project. I just hope it's real.

Perhaps an intern project or self-advertising.

Core Realty owns the land who also developed the warehouses just north of this with the Fillmore, Revolutions, etc.... they're also the company that did the Pennthouses at Penn Treaty.

Core hasn't actually executed any new construction projects, though, and they're currently flipping the approvals for their Delaware & Shackamaxon property, you know, the one with the climbing gym lease.

I fear Samschick's vision exceeds his financial ability.

Isn't that the site of the old World Trade Square project? I'm pretty sure it was going to be somewhere around there.

And that's fine if the project gets off of the ground. We'll see what happens with that other development.

No. The World Trade site is between Callowhill and Noble... the same site that the Renaissance Plaza project has been proposed for like 5 years.

And that's fine ... if the damn things get out of the ground. But as of right now I'm skeptical anything will happen until proven otherwise.

I haven't heard anything about a park on that parcel but it is interesting to note that much of that greensward doesn't even have a property address associated with it, much less an owner.

An Amazon logo is seen inside the Amazon corporate headquarters on June 16, 2017 in Seattle, Washington. North Carolina all in on race for Amazon's HQ2
5 Hours Ago | 01:45
If Amazon plans to stick to the stated criteria for its coveted second headquarters location, it may want to look south, at least according to a new CNBC analysis using data from our 2017 America's Top States for Business study and the Census Bureau.
The analysis gives high grades to a number of southern cities, including Atlanta, Raleigh, Charlotte and Greensboro-High Point, North Carolina. Other strong contenders are within the Washington, D.C., area, including Northern Virginia; and Austin, Texas. All have strong workforces, reasonably good economies and business-friendly regulations.
Meanwhile, some of the more sentimental choices, such as Chicago, Pittsburgh and possibly Detroit, may have a tougher go of things. And some locations that submitted headline-grabbing bids, such as Tucson, Arizona, which sent Amazon a giant cactus, may not want to get their hopes up.

I saw this on CNBC earlier...it's just another bullshit list made by some dweeb. I'm glad to know they think Anchorage Alaska is in the running though.

A major aspect of the RFP is a strong transit system. If that truly is an important thing they are looking for, then it pretty much removes most of these options. Philly is the cheapest big city that has a subway/regional/strong transit system.

^ Correct. Fake news. Pittsburgh is in Ohio, I think.
