Don’t know if this has been posted here before but, looks like they broke ground on a 11 or 10 story building next to the Metroplex in Plymouth Meeting at the mid county tolls. Definitely moving a lot of dirt around. I don’t know how to post pics or else I’d screen grab it. https://www.brandywinerealty.com/property/metroplex-ii

Wilmington Riverfront - updates

1) The Capano Avenue of the Arts, building #2 was approved for all needed variances to build their new luxury apartment building (11 floors, 3 parking level floors, 8 floors - residential - which is approximately 141 feet tall and actually like 6-7 inches taller than the Crosby Hill building!).
I was told that all that needs to be done for construction permits is a Waterfront District commission review, which is essentially administrative at this point (that's from the Wilmington Zoning Board). So I expect this building to start pretty soon.

2) The "River House" development announced in late 2019, 401 A Street, from Baltimore developer, Washington Place Equities, might still be on. I emailed their leasing folks and was given a boilerplate response, that "...we will welcome our first residents in Summer of 2022." We shall see, I don't see any construction down there. They have a social media presence but nothing has been updated in about a year:

3) New restaurant - Taco Grande seems to be making a lot of progress. Big Fish started an IG account for it, with construction updates. I don't know about an official opening but it definitely seems like they want to be ready to go for early summer.

You the man Jawn you always get the facts! Thanks for the updates.

For the Riverhouse do they mean construction starts in 2022? or opens in 2022? interesting

Did you see my post about the gold club? seems thats getting redeveloped into a gas station and fast food restaurant. it's a shame because I thought we would get our strip club back.... I guess a new one somewhere else now.

Looks like rail service to Reading is back on the menu!

http://media.amtrak.com/wp-content/u...-Statement.pdf

What I find is a missed opportunity is that they’re not looking to restore rail service to the Lehigh Valley and Scranton via Philly, but rather New York. Because of history, those areas are more culturally aligned with Philly but itd be a shame to lose that connection to New York. Seems to me the best thing to do would be to run rail from Scranton to Philly via Allentown, and connect each to NYC individually. But not sure how feasible that is.

I saw renderings about 3 years ago for a 3-4 story residential building with ground floor commercial (if I recall correctly) but I can't find them now. I know there was a set of renderings on Loopnet and I thought I had previously shared them here but I guess not. And that was before the fire at the sneaker store at neighboring 405 N. Market and the ensuing demo (which now adds to the total grass lot size) so I'd expect plans would have changed base on that anyway. That said, I don't know if there's been any update to the design or any movement on the project itself in the past two years since I left. The lot is owned by the family that owns Dragon Cuisine right there on the corner of 4th and Market.
