Summer, I wasn't questioning a 30 floor office building that was 500 feet high, I was picking on your typo.

OK so another building is proposed on 1919 Market Street. First and second floor will be retail. When I look at rendering, somewhat I envision something similar to mini Columbus Circle in Manhattan. They will also have a gym in the third floor! And outdoor swimming pool (for the resident!)
That would be nice and enliven that part of Market Street, which is currently somewhat (almost) dead in the weekend.
I really hope we can have City Target there or something similar. Bed, Bath and Beyond perhaps? Due to it proximity to Trader's Joe, it will be a benison for walkers like us.

Note: I am not going to mention anything about the height, which is a clearl disappointment. But anything to fill that lot is appreciated.

Does anybody know what was the outcome on who was going to win the right to build a 2nd casino in Philadelphia? Wasn't Steve Wynn the front runner to build a riverfront casino in Fishtown?
