Yeah, I hope this gets jammed up. There's no good reason to demolish these, especially with how many parking lots and standalone parking garages are still in the surrounding area.

I was semi-onboard (WAS, I've since changed my mind) with the Toll Bros project, but this is just inexcusable.

Yes exactly, this isn't midtown NYC where this not a single lot left to develop. Just in this vicinity we have parking lots at 8th and Market, 8th and Chestnut, 711 Chestnut, 8th and Ludlow, 815 Walnut, 9th and Chestnut, 9th and Locust and surely some more I missed.

Bleh!!!

As most of you know, buildings within the nominated Jewelers' Row Historic District are protected from demolition until the pending* nomination is eventually considered and acted on by the Historical Commission. Unfortunately these 2 are on Chestnut St and not within the boundaries of the proposed district.

*Moot in regards to this proposal, but the nomination was submitted 4 years ago this month.

Furthermore, this is demolishing 4-story buildings for a 7-story building. What the fuck? Literally... what the fuck?

At least Toll Brothers is building a 20+ story highrise and we can take some solace in that fact.

I'd rather see this project somewhere else than close to the Delaware waterfront. It's nice and all, but thinking of what if Bridgeman's View Tower, the Trump Tower, and the World Trade Square could've been, but all those projects bit the dust last decade.

Liberty on the River and the current Penn's Landing Redevelopment give me hope of high rise living nearby the Delaware waterfront. Not saying this is a bad project, but the city could've at least zoned the area for high-rises as opposed to what they're allowing to be built on Delaware Ave.

PhilaPort to start work on new $42M warehouse

Quote:
PhilaPort plans to break ground on Thursday on a new $42 million, 201,621-square-foot distribution center that is part of a broader capital investment program at the port.

The building at 445 Pattison Ave. will be leased to Holt Logistics Corp. as part of the company's lease at the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal. The facility will have 32 loading docks and provide storage for dry cargo arriving at that terminal. PhilaPort also intends to leverage the facility to attract new ocean lines and other business to the port. Once operational, it is expected to create 200 to 300 jobs.

A second phase totaling 217,000 square feet could eventually be built that would incorporate refrigerated warehousing.
