Not sure if it means anything, but I noticed the billboard here was changed from the quirky ad-campaign stuff (can you say/spell Schuylkill??) to more directly, "NOW LEASING!" A recent occurrence.

I'm somewhat disappointed considering previous iterations were much bolder/more unique design approach. This is, ya know, just blue glass. Certainly better than what was there before, but overall a pretty bland reno.

Relax. They’ve yet to put up the red stuff.

It's not blue glass. It's special glass that has some kind of etching embedded. You can somewhat tell from the gallery section of the following website:

https://schuylkillyards.com/lease-sp...-market-street

And, the exoskeleton should me it pop and unique.

I forgot they are adding the red cladding. For some reason I thought that it got nixed....good news.

They’re testing the LED ticker on the Bulletin Building. It’s super bright!

when this was the home of the Evening Bulletin there was a ticker on the building. I sortof remember it being on the corner. I'm sure there is a photo of it somewhere floating around------In the Bulletin days it was a news/weather/time ticker, I'm sortof afraid of how Drexel might use it.

I have a feeling that's what it'll do: display the weather, time, and probably some transit info.

When does Drexel /Brandywine drop some coin to get 30th Street Station renamed Schuylkill Yards Station?

Probably never, considering that:

1) SEPTA does not own 30th Street
2) 30th Street is much more widely known and utilized than, say, University City
3) There is likely plenty of litigation preventing any further name change after it was 'officially' renamed to "William H Gray III 30th St Station."

Curious if it is possible, because the 30th St Station for Amtrak was renamed like you said. But the Septa 30th Street Station "stop" could happen with a name change. They are both mutually exclusive, no?

That's a good question. Now that you mention it, I'm not sure there's any reason that SEPTA couldn't call their platforms something else.

I'm talking about the Regional Rail station at 30th Street, not the entire Amtrak Station.

^^^ seems like a good idea to me. Didn't they just rename university city station to penn medicine station?
