Saw this sign today advertising retail space. Brandywine has said they are looking at multi-floor retail at this location.

These metro population numbers are always skewed, deceiving, and imo wrong. Philly always gets shrifted here. In the past week I did the Rt30 from Exton to Lancaster and 309 from Chestnut Hill to Allentown/Whitehall. Uninterrupted development. DC + NY would somehow pull Lancaster/Allentown into their metro. Not Philly though.



Philadlephia's location(between NYC+DC) and geography makes it ripe for growth. Bostons more on the northern frontier and they are limited growth wise being between the Atlanic Ocean and Berkshires.

Honestly I think these numbers are very conservative. It's going to take our metro almost 40 years to get to 14 million?

These never take into account the fact that our metro lost so much population and is built much denser than its current population suggests. I've been crunching numbers for awhile now on current population in the Delaware Valley versus peak population/capacity, and I'll post it somewhere on the forum when I'm done. It's going to open more than a few eyes.

One thing that annoys me though about these metros is that Philadelphia is the only large city that doesn't try to act like everywhere even remotely near it is a part of its metro. Philadelphia doesn't add Lancaster or Harrisburg or Allentown or the Jersey shore. It doesn't add Delaware further than New Castle County, etc. I saw DC posters trying to act like Baltimore was a part of their metro! A city that at one point had almost a million people and was very prominent, that is completely independent and has two major sports franchises!
