Point is, the proposed project sits near the Manayunk Brewing Co., so all business and residential including new projects in Manayunk should benefit from a reduction in flooding issues except for the most exceptional one. Perhaps, a bank might stomach the risk knowing this fact and flood insurance (due to being in a flood plain) should further mitigate their exposure to any loss.
Depending on how often they expect this tank to be taking on water, too bad they can't include a couple of levels of parking. Parking problems seem like they have been an issue since Le Bus moved into Manayunk 20 some years ago. Some central parking with a shuttle bus service might be a real godsend.

Trolley colors, this plan, if it happens, is years and years away; remember among all the molehills to be climbed is a small one called funding. This is SEPTA, of course they'll screw up, but why not just count on that and plan on a new paint or decal job after 5 years. SEPTA's planning has little to nothing to do with SEPTA's actual future.

Parking is a challenge on Main Street for sure during weekends, but there are a few good size parking lots off Main Street when you cross over the Schuykill Canal to Venice Island. I like to use Manayunk Parking b/c it has a kiosk system. Credit Card and your license plate and you are good to go.

Not aware of trolleys for Manyunk. And, I suppose they operate that holding tank based on rain calculations, storms, and other variables and they can switch the pump on to empty it out to the Schuykill River as needed.
