It just looks like way too much open space to develop in a weird, not super desirable location. Who wants to be the first tenant in this brownfield? Like, SYards i can visualize - there's an actual there there - in terms of location, density, TOD, and land-use. This feels like, "Hi, I'm in Delaware."

Am I crazy - or will this fill in super quickly?
A block off Market is Delaware? It does look odd without anything built outside of the initial buildings on Market (and with all the lots there - they're going away, right?), but Lancaster Ave directly north is growing. Market Street is always a draw. Does anyone think the neighborhood around this (Powelton) isn't taking off as well??

I think this is an odd angle, but there is a lot going on around this super block.
