This is unpopular but I will trade for some garages to get rid of street parking and add in bike/bus lanes in the busiest sections of the city

Sorry about that. But I think you meant that anything 12 floors and over, as opposed to "[a]nything over 12 floors goes into the Highrise Development Thread if there is no thread for that project yet." I'm going to blame that ambiguity for my confusion.

Not to mention that it's hard to remember and keep track of all the "shorter" highrise threads.

This is a top-notch project! Who could've predicted that such a project would eventually be proposed at 3rd and Huntingdon five years ago, let alone a decade ago?! The development wave is also getting very close to Lehigh. Once some ground-up mixed-use development gets going on West Lehigh, it will be a game changer for the neighborhoods east of Broad.

I also love 3900 Main Street, and I think that the second iteration of 6174 Ridge Avenue looks much better than the 1st. Meanwhile, 2301 Walnut is a huge disappointment and the proposed storage facility is wildly out of place for 32nd and Jefferson.

Why another self storage building. This is literally next to the Erie-Torresdale station. What a waste

Why wouldn't you just cover the entire "facade" with the decorative screening? This looks half finished. Ridiculous.

I had the same thought. It’s kind of odd. My first thought was that it has to do with exhaust requirements but on second thought that doesn’t really make sense. Maybe it’s to provide more light coming into the garage. There must be a reason.

Centro de Oro has been around for a while, it's usually referred to as just 5th Street a little further up. Eventually this neighborhood will have a Spanish name and no Spanish people in it lol.

I actually thought about it a couple of times. I think it would be a better compromise if the city offered to build garages with the first commercial floor in places where there is high demand for parking, which would make it easier to replace street parking with bike/bus lanes or garbage containers.

I get the impression that many of the Puerto Ricans from West Kensington are moving up to Juniata Park.

I thought this is a bit interesting to share.

There is a UK newspaper promoting Philly as a travel destination.

If we make more trails in Fairmount park along with reducing car lanes, finish constructing FDR park, finish construction multiple museums, rebuild the parkway with less cars along with possibly capping 676 we could be one of the best park cities in the country and rival other cities with museums.

I mean, it's promoted content by PHL and British Airways it appears. Still nice to see. I don't know why Eastern State Penitentiary is so prominently featured as a cultural destination. Weird.
