Off topic but I'm lamenting the fact that McBane stopped posting and hopefully the exchange above didn't cause him to do so.

McBane, if you are out there, please come back!

I thought this project got a denial from the ZBA. Does anyone know if things have changed?

Looks like this project's variance was granted by the ZBA on November 20th; however, I'm not seeing any permits pertaining to the property.

The Quaker Building redevelopment was originally denied but they eventually got their variance granted after two appeals. The new buildings in the project got their variances approved earlier this year.

It's great to see this project moving forward. This area desperately needs people and foot traffic. I'm also reminded of an old post I made in this thread about adding a regional rail station here and someone said there was once a stop at 9th and Girard so I found a photo. It never ceases to amaze me how much of Philadelphia's past has been destroyed.

Very cool find! There were a lot of "inner-city" rail stations that were eliminated as suburbanization took hold in the 20th Century. The 52nd Street station on the main line is another prime example. We should eventually rebuild many of these stations as part of some unplanned-for but very much needed revamp of regional rail according to European best practices (ie increased frequency; all-level boarding platforms; reduced staffing on trains; lower fares and "fare equity" so that short rides within the city are priced similar to buses and subways).

Yup-- an entire neighborhood that centered around that part of Girard was completely wiped out for PHA housing, half of which never got built. That's why I think it's shameful that local publications keep repeating this bogus statistic that 2018 had the most demolitions in the city's history. Every single year of the 1960s had more. It's a straight-up lie now being repeated as fact.

60 units? Sounds like this has been significantly downsized or the permit has a typo.

It's multiple buildings.

Could be the smaller (most eastern) building in the original render.
