Some interesting movement in Mantua that I don't think has been covered yet here:

Quote:
The “Village Square on Haverford” envisions a two-phase development that will bring 166 units of housing to 36th Street and Haverford Avenue, along with 31,145 square feet of commercial space anchored by a “full-service” Met Fresh Supermarket.

Lomax said the sale will head to City Council for final approval with a projected groundbreaking in the second quarter of 2020.
For something that's been sitting for years without much of an update, that's a fairly quick start time.

Really excited to see something - specifically an urban project with a grocery store - in this space. The image in the article isn't the greatest, but it's infinitely better than what's there currently and a big step in the right direction for the neighborhood.
