Apropos to Bridget Foy's, the long-awaited Head House Square redevelopment (also Ambit) finally got underway earlier this year. It's been coming along steadily for several months now.

What a shame! I had no idea!

I suppose this is probably the best outcome though.

I put a deposit on one of these opening weekend.

I'm hedging that my work from home situation is going to be semi-permanent or that at most I'll have to be in NY 2-3 days a week for work post-Covid.

It's a bit of a random location but the concept is awesome and the developers have a history of executing. I think it has the potential to be really special.

these places are really nice and i’ve had similar discussions of “river and skyline view would be nice at this price point”. the lack of walkable retail would be my main draw back, but by the time this is done it will likely be drastically different. did you go to the sales office?

Yes. I had an appointment at the sales office.

Retail is included on ground floor of the 2 multi-family buildings and it's honestly not that far from Girard Avenue in Fishtown. I expect at least a cool coffee shop and a restaurant to open there in the retail component.

For me, the location actually sold it. It's literally across from an on-ramp to 95 Northbound. I work in the World Trade Center in NYC. If I had to do the commute 2-3 days a week (which I already know won't start until July of 2021) then I pop across the street, drive to the Trenton train station (25 minutes), hop on an Amtrak there and get off at Newark Penn (35 minutes), then walk across the platform to the PATH to the WTC. That's about a 20 minute ride and the train goes into the bottom of my building at the Oculus.

Door to door it has the potential to be an hour and 20 minute commute for me. Which is not terrible if you're not doing it every day. And at this point, I might just keep a room in NYC in the event I want to crash and not come back for a night or crash with friends for 1 night a week to lighten the load of the commute.

Sounds ideal for your situation. And I'm assuming you already confirmed that they'll be burying their utility wires...?

That is amazing if developed. Plus more bigger sidewalks coming to the area? Its pretty tight now with all the runners. After years of a dead water front, so glad to see so much investment

I sure hope so, otherwise how can anyone be expected to live there?

Yes. It will be lovely to live in a neighborhood with clean streets (900 house HOA) and no above ground wires.

All that for $165/MO. Includes private trash pickup and grounds maintenance.

My taxes on the Northern Liberties house have tripled in 10 years and still the city can't find $18MM a year for street cleaning.

Well said. Many of us feel the exact same way.

Well, I pay a $0/mo HOA, have (free?) city sanitation pick-up, and live on a super clean block with street trees. But I also pay a bit more in taxes than $165 per month. Anyway, hope it works out for you.

Do you have buried powerlines though? If you have to look at a powerline, you might as well kill yourself.
