Medians of MARKET, BROAD, WASHINGTON "BOULEVARD", COLUMBUS
(I like to call it Delaware River Boulevard, combined w Delaware Ave)
Develop a GREEN PLAN. With a timeline. A guide. Then start acquiring the funding. This may exist

Never take TOURISTS for granted!
development of the "Philadelphia Canopy"
'Construction should start in the next 5 years'

Seriously, they need a Marshall Plan level of just-get-it-done execution, they've been pondering the greenway since at least 2012.

Don't get me started on the Penn's landing cap. I always saw 2026 as the date but someone mentioned 2030 a day or two ago. LOL.

How could it possibly take 5 years just to start the project?...

Does the Washington Avenue project have trees planned?

It's OK guys I found the money: Philadelphia spent $775M less than it allocated in fiscal 2022. Here's what it plans to do with the money.

Quote:
With the extra spending dollars available, the city said it will put "a significant portion" of the funding to reserves as extra backing toward inflation and preparation for a what many see as an imminent economic downturn.

Philadelphia will also look to "make targeted but essential investments now across a number of areas including education, public safety, Parks and Rec and the Free Library, cultural institutions, infrastructure investment, and homeless services."
Idk if it's necessarily a good thing that a lot of the savings are from positions going unfilled, but higher than expected collections on BIRT and wage taxes is probably a good thing, and it can't hurt to bolster city finances.

Just reporting, the core is already above ground - we need a pictorial update for this one.

Really surprised this one doesn't have a tower crane yet. It'll be interesting to see how they manage when it gets taller.

Looks like crane is up now- I saw a blue one that was not there last week looking east from the rail viaduct going into town this AM.

They were installing the crane base this weekend, so I'm glad to hear it's up. Two tower cranes are now up just a few blocks apart on Spring Garden, with the other at 200 Spring Garden.
