And speaking of Old City, I saw this the other day walking to the Harbor Park. Seems like it's this lot at the corner of Hancock and Walnut.





Also about old city! Anyone know how long the buildings going up on the lot in front of the red building here been under construction? I see them from the El and PATCO, and they seem like they've been going up forever.

Can AQ Rittenhouse get its own thread? It's predicted to be 12 floors which I believe to be the minimum number.

Maybe the answer is already on here somewhere else, but does anyone know why City Hall doesn't show up on the Philadelphia skyscraper diagram (http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?cityID=326)?

It's on the timeline diagram (http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?...hname=timeline), so clearly the problem isn't that nobody's ever drawn it, but for some reason it's missing from the general diagram, even though it's the ninth tallest building in the city (for now anyway... it'll be 11th after CITC and FMC are done).

I feel like I can't have been the first one to notice this, so maybe there's a reason, it just seems weird that it's missing, especially since it was Philly's de facto height limit for such a long time.

Could a Huge Catering Facility Be Coming to The Met?
Thursday, July 24, 2014, by James Jennings



There are some interesting developments going on at the Metropolitan Opera House on North Broad Street. You know it simply as The Met. Chris Cordaro of EB Realty Management Corporation tells us that they are currently in negotiations to convert the lower level of the building into a large catering facility. "We're in discussions now about the size," said Cordaro when contacted by phone. Although nothing is solid quite yet, he noted that it could be up to 20,000 square feet in size. EB Realty — you know, Eric Blumenfeld's company — owns the property along with Holy Ghost Headquarters Church. Cordaro also mentioned that Holy Ghost, led by Reverend Mark A. Hatcher, will also have a separate space for services. What's more, Cordaro explained that they're looking to add a bakery, a restaurant, some office space and a grand banquet area in addition to the planned event space, which is still being developed.

Remember how we brought you the news they were busy blasting the graffiti off of The Divine Lorraine? Well, it looks like The Met has gotten a scrub down on the Broad Street and Poplar Street sides of the building, both had large tags as recently as October of last year. Cordaro mentioned there is no set timeline for the project but they were "very pleased" with the renderings supplied by Stokes Architecture.
Full article, with working links and stuff: http://philly.curbed.com/archives/20...to-the-met.php

Holy Ghost is also, in fact, a decent indie band.

I've noticed this too and it drives me nuts. A few years back it was there, and the diagram was great. IDK who did the diagram, or why it's not listed any longer. Maybe it was accidentally erased, or the website db was updated and broke the query that would pull it up?

I wish I knew. One thing is for certain that I personally, am not talented enough to make a new one. I wish I was, because I'd bang out a ton of diagrams if I could.

No problem, I'm waiting for the grassy areas to go in - to bring some color to the area --green! The new trees are nice. The grass will do it. But I imagine grass is the last thing to be added.
