I feel like this thread should be locked.

This development by this developer is never going to happen.

They've been talking about it for what, 20 years?

Give me a break. Let this thread die the death it deserves.

Basically if you can't give me a solid timeline I'm not going to put much stock in your perpetual proposal.
Bringing up the rule against perpetuities 21 years after i graduated from law school is cruel and unusual punishment.

Ahhhh, the rule against perpetuities--brings back memories of first-year Property class (many, many years ago).

Here's to fun times in law school.

Thankfully I never have to think about it again until some punk-ass law student cracks wise about it on an internet message board. I am about to drink many, many, beers.

I did call the unborn widow the "Hefner Rule" in class.

Not when moderators bring it back to life after such compelling info from the report.

Oh, god. Are we all lawyers? That would explain a lot of the fighting.

Yes, it's true. Deep down we are ALL lawyers--even those who never went to law school.

A new sign with an old rendering went up recently on the corner of the property.


With the Durst Organization buying up everything across the street, maybe this one still has legs.

And the proposals continue. We were supposed to have a whole new district anchored by Bridgeman's View Tower by now lol. Waterfront development and the city just do not gel for some reason. Only the Waterfront Square Towers have panned out in recent memory.

What the water front needs is trump/dump tower. Then everything would be perfect. Bring back that hope and a prayer.

Even Waterfront Square didn't have enough demand to be completed.

I think that's just part of the city's general westward movement. Back in the distant past the center of the city was Old City, then later it became East Market, then it was the area west of Market, and now it's moving to around the Schuylkill.

No, it's because few want to live next to highways or cut off from the rest of the city by hellish I-95 and Columbus Boulevard. I bet residential adjacent to the planned park cap between Chestnut and Walnut will be successful. That cap is reputed to be about 5 years away. 2.5 years in the design/engineering phase and 2.5 years for construction. I could otherwise see some demand where the area east of I-95 is wide enough for a self-contained neighborhood. But I think it's still a niche market.
