OK...found my picture of the building, taken on Saturday, December 3rd:



Meanwhile, I wasn't fully aware of how much work is going on inside. This was taken a couple minutes after the previous picture:


Lastly, while it's not exactly retail, I really wish THIS would get replaced:

Wasn't it supposed to be temporary orginally? Well, obviously that did not happen. Ugh.

Not to my knowledge; I don't recall reading, hearing or seeing anything that indicated that the 10th and Filbert bus terminal was definitely going to be replaced by something else. I considered talk of putting a bus terminal at 30th Street Station just that.

I know there's still talk about that, including a facility for the curbside discounters. And given that I think Drexel will manage to carry out all of its planned Schuylkill Yards development, one will be necessary, or the curbside buses will have to find a new street to board on about a decade or so from now. But I still don't see any actual forward movement on this front.

I am a little confused on the exact location, but it looks like this Sweat will kind of resemble an NYC Equinox.

And more precisely, The Gayborhood, west of 11th Street. Calling it "Midtown Village" is a Manhattan-ized whitewashing.

CCD Report: Millennials Help Spur Strong Retail Growth | News | Philadelphia Magazine


This kind of makes me laugh, if the demand is so hot, why did AT&T, Verizon, AC Moore and Wawa take up prime spaces, and there are at least a dozen vacant storefronts between Chestnut and Walnut...


I'm sure I will get backlash from some of you, but when I see phillymag put out articles like this, I think its bogus, but maybe good for marketing? The stats of a growing more educated population are true, but I would hardly call Philadelphia's retail scene "hot"
Only one area in region is hot with retail, but I won't name it since I post about it all the time.
