The DP with the scoop. This would be an ideal spot for a luxury residential tower or high-rise hotel.
So is Koreana going to close? Aww I love that place. Hopefully they can move somewhere else near campus. If they do plan to turn this into a tower, I hope they maintain a retail ground floor for restaurants and eateries.

^Koreana has a location in Center City on 19th Street now, right near where the new POD Hotel is u/c.

Here are a few of the new Gallery - I mean Fashion District:

Redevelopment for 2400 Market St. is in the final stretch

https://www.bizjournals.com/philadel...the-final.html

Quote:
In September 2016, a partnership involving Lubert-Adler and PMC Property Group announced it would kick off the redevelopment and expansion of 2400 Market St., a 650,000-square-foot building that was vacant. The firms had lined up Aramark Corp. to take half of the empty space for its new headquarters.

Now just two months before the building will be completed and Aramark begins to move in, 2400 Market is 97 percent leased. “We’re only down to 20,000 square feet,” said Dean Adler of Lubert-Adler. “This has been the fastest lease up of any building in Philadelphia.”

Lubert-Adler will be among the tenants moving into 2400 Market. The firm and its related entities are now in about 52,000 square feet at Cira Centre and will occupy about 35,000 square feet on 2400 Market’s third floor. In addition, Entercomm Communications Corp. leased the fourth floor, which is 67,000 square feet for its new headquarters. Fitler Club, a private, members-only lifestyle club that will provide amenities including an Olympic-size swimming pool, overnight rooms, dining and event space, took 75,000 square feet in the building and will use an additional 30,000 square feet as co-working space.

In addition, lease negotiations are underway for two restaurants that will have indoor and outdoor dining on a boardwalk to be constructed over a sliver of the Schuylkill River.

It’s no small feat to fill 650,000 square feet of office space in Philadelphia with multiple tenants, but Adler believes how 2400 Market was positioned along with its location has created a new blueprint for approaching buildings in the future. “It’s your dream office building with lifestyle amenities,” he said. “Most office buildings are sterile. This is a building with heart and soul and is a model for providing a high level of service and amenities to an office building.”

In 2014, the partnership between PMC Property and Lubert-Adler paid $42 million for 2400 Market, which had been known for years as the Market Place Design Center. At the time of the purchase, Adler predicted its redevelopment would be “the most exciting project Lubert-Adler has worked on in 15 years” — a harbinger that appears to have come to fruition.

The property totaled 350,000 square feet and the developers added five new floors totaling 300,000 square feet to the existing four-story building and invested a total of around $160 million. Tenants like its 15-foot ceilings, its waterfront location that provide long vistas, a lot of natural light, access to the Schuylkill River Trail as well as proximity to mass transit, major arteries and University City, Adler said.

“The city is shifting,” he said, and 2400 Market reflects that. Development in University City has pushed eastward while the Central Business District is migrating west, a dynamic that has evolved as more development activity has taken place around 30th Street Station at one end and more projects, such as Comcast Corp.’s new office towers, are done in and around Logan Square.

But Adler believes what really sets 2400 Market apart is the Fitler Club and its associated coworking space. It provides a place to meet, dine and workout. It gives tenants in the building the ability to expand by renting an office in the coworking space and the use its conference rooms, which helped Lubert-Adler shrink the amount of space it will occupy in the building compared to what it is in now at Cira Centre. All of those amenities also expected to foster social interaction among tenants and employees in 2400 Market.

“It’s a dream amenity for a workplace,” Adler said. “That’s the competitive edge.”

No. The "boardwalk" projects ever so slightly out from the western facade of the building. It will not even extend as far as to cover the air above the railroad tracks. If these CDR docs are still accurate, the plan view shows that at its widest, the promenade is less than 30 feet wide: https://www.phila.gov/CityPlanning/p...16_reduced.pdf

Where is this? This is awful. From the ground, it looks like any other suburban bank/fast food/drugstore pad with the parking lot and generic brick 1 story structure (scroll down so the tower is off the screen - see?). The glass tower looks like it comes outta nowhere. And then the piece de resistance - the billboard. Ugh. This might be the ugliest development I've seen in recent memory.

Please no Wendy's jokes (lol).

It's between I-95 and the El. Front & Wildey.

And yes, it's ugly.

DRPA redesign plan for reopening PATCO Hi-Speedline station at Franklin Square in Philly

https://www.courierpostonline.com/st...ly/1360728002/



Quote:
Rink said inner city PATCO use between the city's four stations also has increased in recent years as has weekend ridership across the entire transit line.

The station was built in 1936, but only opened periodically over the years before shutting down in 1979.

The DRPA already has received a $13.9 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant to help pay for construction. Its five-year capital plan also allots some of its annual Federal Transit Administration grants from 2018 and 2019 toward the estimated $24 million project cost.

The project schedule calls for a completed design by the end of next year with construction to start in April 2020.

I hate to admit I'm a fan of the Carvana or any development around that section of the 95 overpass, whatever the look. Despite the Live Nation complex and the Piazza on both sides of 95, as well as all the recent residential construction nearby, it is still an unsettling/ugly ass walk at times from Philadelphia Distilling back to 2nd street area, etc. Keep building here!
