There was a project proposed there but they didn't really stick to the historic facade at all so it was rejected by the commission.

Can we all agree that the Philly Suburbs is a great example of how City/Suburbs can have light rail and transit that work together.

For example Upper Darby, Springfield, Merion & Bala all have light rail even in some people's back yards!

You can actually live in these areas and catch a train to the city or vice versa, you really could be carless in these areas. I think if people took the time to research and see examples of light rail and suburbs working they would be less hesitant to say no.

Philly is a good example of transit we just didn't built everything due to a lack of money.

Rendering for reference:



Also, on my Tuesday afternoon walk, I noticed that 2602 and 2604 West Girard Avenue are both currently undergoing interior demo. This likely means that 2600 West Girard is also about to start soon!
My synagogue, Congregation Rodeph Shalom, is across Green St. from the proposed Broad St. building...really hope it happens.
