Yes, this was a while ago. I believe it was 'Kevin Hart: What Now?', which ironically, looking at the wikipedia page, was filmed at the Linc 7 years ago tonight. It's actually kind of hard to believe it's been that long since he arose to the "top" of hollywood. It felt like he was absolutely everywhere for a few years there.

Hopefully a solid retailer fills their Rittenhouse space.

Barnes & Noble is moving from Walnut Street to 17th and Chestnut in Philadelphia

https://www.inquirer.com/real-estate...-20220902.html

Philadelphia’s flagship Barnes & Noble location at 1805 Walnut St. will soon be moving to a new, smaller location on Chestnut Street.

A deal has been signed by the bookstore chain and its retail broker, MSC Retail, with the owners of 1708 Chestnut St. The former home of Forever 21 before a wave of bankruptcy-related closures in 2019, the new building that will house the bookstore’s new location is owned by the Rubin family, which helped establish modern Center City.

Following 2020, leasing conditions have been in flux. Some smaller businesses have closed permanently amid pandemic-era retirements, but the sector as a whole has held up better than expected. Center City District reported retail sales had reached 94% of 2019 levels this summer, while restaurant sales were still only at 74% of pre-pandemic levels.



Separately,

Tapster, a self-serve bar with 57 taps, is coming to Rittenhouse Square

https://www.bizjournals.com/philadel...Pos=0#cxrecs_s

Tapster, a Chicago-born concept which has additional outposts in Seattle and another slated to open in Cleveland later this year, will launch its fifth location at 110-16 S. 16th St. in the first quarter of 2023. The company has signed a roughly 3,600-square-foot lease, taking over the spot formerly occupied by Philadelphia Runner.

Bagels & Co. to open six new locations in Philadelphia by early 2023

Quote:
The company, which is operated by Glu Hospitality, will have new locations in Fishtown, Brewerytown, Temple's Campus, Rittenhouse, Midtown Village and Center City. The Fishtown store is set to open this month, with the rest to follow throughout the year.
Bagels and Co. currently has a flagship location at 1001 N. 2nd St. in Northern Liberties.
Nice to see a local company filling a half dozen storefronts.

Also I was watching Good Day Philadelphia the other morning during the Jollibee opening and it was hilarious. The place was absolutely packed. I always wanted to try the fried chicken with the gravy.

Apparently a Rainbow store is opening in the old Olive Garden space near Broad & Chestnut.

Is there really the best retail Center City can get?...

We've come full circle, I guess.

The street floor of the Hale Building, a few doors east of the Olive Garden, housed a store called Valu-Plus in the 1990s, I believe that space had once housed a Baker's shoe store.

And fwiw, the 1200 block has an indie dollar store and a beauty-supply store in it, so it's not like Chestnut east of Broad has gone whole-hog upscale to begin with.

Do you say this about Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn too because Rainbows exist? Not somewhere I would necessarily go, but it isn't that different than the 'City Blue' place that use to be around the corner from there.

There is a large difference between "whole-hog upscale" and a Rainbow.
It is a large space on a high traffic corridor, I envisioned something with more usefulness and/or cachet. But it is what it is, I'm not here crying, just sharing mild disappoint (and a retail update).

Depending on the location, I would.
