The problem with Bala, in my opinion, is the walkability factor. Obviously, City Avenue is not walkable at all, so I won't really speak to that here. More interesting for development could be the small, "blink and you'll miss it" commercial corridor on Montgomery Avenue at the intersection of Levering Mill Rd/Old Lancaster Rd. Montgomery Avenue is still not nearly as walkable as even Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore, in my opinion, just due to the sheer speed of cars on that road. But it's far better than City Avenue.


A major disservice was done to Bala Cynwyd when the Bala Theater closed. I heard rumors of trying to renovate and reopen, but I don't know how accurate they are.

Sounds like the "new" Bourse will be fun and a little edgy! Good. Looking forward to it.

There are also new things coming to Suburban Station. There's a new restaurant, open about a month ago, near the 16th and JFK stairway, in a portion of the station that has not had any retail for years.

Don’t get the hype over federal donuts. But I think they will be successful there.

Really? That fried chicken sandwich is arguably the best I've ever had.

He got caught up in the scam casino nonsense and sold the Tower( State Bldg) so it looked like nothing would happen on that corner.

This is a much smaller project but still it will do well because the daytime foot traffic is hundreds of people on that block.

Plus, the parking lot across the street is earmarked for development by Parkway.

Additionally, the Hamilton at Broad and Callowhill is leasing.

This isn't Philadelphia retail news, but Hudson Bay announced the upcoming closure of the Lord & Taylor 5th Ave flagship store. One of the worlds most iconic department stores. A major sign of the changing retail scene.

I could see Lord & Taylor closing all stores within the next few years

Saw this in the NYC thread. Very sad. The old B Altman building still looks like a ghost town and it's been closed for years.
