Another plan preservation/re-use plan announced today a little bit north. The entire Northern Liberties, Fishtown, South Kensington is booming non-stop.

Urban forest or urban boulevard? Philadelphia tries to reimagine the Parkway — again.

https://www.inquirer.com/real-estate...-20210801.html

Good article from Inga. I generally agree with her points. Reducing driving lanes is a given, more cafes, more cultural amenities, and importantly (and overlooked) adding more dense residential projects on the Parkway.

Not sure why some Philadelphia officials and neighbors have resistance to this idea, yet they want the Parkway to emulate the Champs-Elysees. A bit contradictory.

Either way, I hope one day soon these endless studies will result in improvements to one of Philadelphia's premiere boulevards. The Calder Sanctuary is a great start in adding more cultural amenities.
