Either it is delayed, fell through or was a smoke and mirrors game.

is there something proposed for that lot? They were using it the past few years basically as storage for all the construction materials for the EL rehab. last few times I went by there it was just empty. Was there news something is going to happen there?

[SIZE=5]Chinatown Eastern Tower Community Center



[/SIZE]
The Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation plans to build a 23-story, 265-foot-high residential and office tower, with a community center on the ground floor, on two parcels at the northwest corner of Vine and 10th streets. The communities strong desire for a community center prompted the project, but constructing a stand-alone center proved prohibitive, therefore the PCDC joined with private developer Teres Holdings to iron out a more solid economic plan.

Plans call for 12,000 square feet of retail space, 15,000 square feet of office space, 144 mostly rental apartments and a 23-car garage. A small charter school is a possible office tenant, and the buildings 2-story community center would include 500-person multi-function room where basketball can be played and a health center. floors 6 to 23 would be residential, with a mix of one and two bedroom units. The tower would be topped with a green roof, residences would have operable windows, and silver LEED certification would be sought.

It's going to benefit mainly Chinese immigrants. This is really Chinatown's tower.

There have been countless projects that went to chinatown to die an unfulfilled death. I mean it's not like they just fight outsider projects like the casino (which was reasonable to do) or the baseball stadium (which was significantly less reasonable to fight) there have been plenty of projects that would have improved life for current neighborhood residents that were fought none the less. Chinatown is a poster child for irrational NIMBYism.

In any event I hope this one actually gets done. The fact that they want a community center gives me more hope, but I have a feeling that NIMBYism will significantly bastardize this project.
