In 10-15 years, we'll have a vibrant and attractive stretch of city all the way from Old City to University City!
Per the recent conference on Center City development, the emerging new conception of Center City runs from the Delaware River all the way out to 40th Street, essentially encompassing University City. And when you add on to that the burgeoning neighborhoods running both south and north of Center City (perhaps eventually stretching continuously up to Temple and beyond), . . . .
Well, let's keep our fingers crossed.
Hopefully we're about to reach, if we haven't already reached, the necessary critical mass.
